A. Review Stage
Please check with your editor on whether to submit your
manuscript as hard copy or electronically for review. If hard
copy, submit photocopies such that only one column appears

comments. Send the number of copies specified by your editor
(typically four). If submitted electronically, find out if your
editor prefers submissions on disk or as e-mail attachments.
