Author Instructions

This page constitutes EAI’s guidelines for the preparation of proceedings papers in our series:

  • EAI Community Research Series – CORE
  • EAI Computing and Communication in Emerging Regions – CCER.

Preparation of Your Paper

Your submission may be prepared in Microsoft Word. All formatting and structuring requirements are included in the required EAI Authors’ template. We require all PDFs and Word source files of all of the accepted articles. Please note that we cannot accept Framemaker files. Our preferred reference style is Vancouver reference style, an author-number system (please see the references at the end of EAI Authors’ Template for examples of the style). The volume editors, usually the program chairs, will be your main points of contact for the preparation of the volume.

Ethics and Plagiarism

Please refer to the following page for guidelines on Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement.

Typesetting of Your Paper

Please ensure that the your submitted paper is final and complete, that it follows the ethical guidelines stated in the Ethics and Malpractice Statement, that the authors listed at the top of the paper are correct and complete, and that you have included all citations and references. If the instructions have been followed closely, then only very small alterations will be made to your paper. The format of the paper will be checked by our typesetters, and small formatting errors or differences from the template may be corrected. If your paper is not in the required template, you may be contacted by a volume editor or EAI representative and asked to provide a corrected version of your paper. DOI (Digital Object Identifier) will be added to your paper. The DOI is a unique code assigned by the publisher to each paper published online. It’s persistent and therefore provides a permanent way of finding published papers.

Online Publication in EUDL

All CORE and CCER proceedings papers are published in our European Union Digital Library with valid ISBN and ISSN number. The series are Open Access and all visitors have access to the eBook and full-text PDFs of the proceeding papers.
