Other expeditions, abstracts, proceedings

General information

Starting from 2013 a more stringent structuring concept has been implemented in compiling the final expedition reports of "Polarstern" to be published in the "Reports on Polar and Marine Research". Apart from the bibliometric entry of the reports as "hdl" into the AWI system Reports on Polar and Marine Research are additionally linked to a permant identifyer (DOI) with the objective to persistently archive them, improve their accessibility and advance their retrieval.

Reasons for the application of templates

The use of templates ensures to maintain a persistent style in respect to text, tables and captions.

Use of a Microsoft-Word-based  template

Since Microsoft Word is widely used the template is based on that programme.  The author simply overwrites the AWI style sheets specifically designed for special text elements, such as headings, running text, captions. The style sheets of these individual text components will have the corresponding name like AWI-heading 1, 2 or 3, AWI-standard, AWI-captions etc. 

Application of the templates

For pasting text from other documents, i.e. from expedition programs, kindly use the menu "Edit" and then "paste special" to insert the text in an unformatted way. All relevant details concerning the formatting of text, tables and captions are listed in detail in the template which can be openened with the most common Word versions. 

Presenting photos for the cover page

After implementing the new Corporate Design at AWI also the cover pages of the Reports on Polar and Marine Research had been adapted. A photo representative for that expedition or that workshop will be used on the cover page. Therefore, the author is asked to submit 3 photos in landscape format for the editors to choose from. Please note that the blue AWI banderol will overlap about a third of the photo at the bottom.

A Copyright licence in which the photographer agrees to vest his rights to AWI must be returned.
