Guidelines for full papers
UPDATE FEBRUARY 23: There has been several requests regarding the document template, where authors have observed that the template is blank. It was meant to be blank, as the template contains all the typographies which should be used, but several authors had problems with that. We have therefore made a sample document, which you can download here
The full papers for IFSA 2012 should be submitted to the workshop convenors and the IFSA 2012 organising committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2012. The paper abstracts, which will be finalized by February 5, will be published in a printed book of abstracts, whereas the full papers will be published electronically at www.ifsa2012.dk. In order to ease our editing work on the full papers, we have issued a set of guidelines as well as electronic templates for full papers.
Full papers should include the following elements: Title, author name(s), author affiliations, keywords, abstract and of course the remaining manuscript. The body text of the paper should be supplied with headings which reflects the contents of the subsequent paragraphs. You should use the supplied Word-template for your papers, which you can download here. The template is supplied in both Word 2007 and Word 2003 format. The length of full papers should be maximum 8 pages, using the Word-template, including figures and tables. As a rule of thumb, the paper should not exceed 5.200 words (this applies for a paper where there is no graphics, and roughly 650 words per page, using the templates line spacing at 1.15).
Figures and images should be delivered as separate graphics files. Files should be named in a logical manner, e.g. figure1, figure2,.. Supply the document with captions for each figure and a clear indication of where the figure should be inserted in the text. Please supply graphics files in 600 dpi resolution and in GIF, PNG or JPG formats. Tables should preferably be native Word-tables and be embedded within the text, without exceeding the page margins.
Regarding references, you can use the supplied Endnote-Style (*.ens) which formats the various layouts for different types of references. Download the Endnote style here. If you are not an Endnote-user, you can use the supplied Reference Manager output style. For those of you, who are not using reference management software, you should conform to these conventions:

Regarding citations, they should follow the following convention: (Author, Year) or (Author, Year:Cited Pages). Use letters for ambiguous citations: 2000a, 2000b and so on. If there are more than two authors, use first author followed by et al.
