Your Template - quality assurance through our layout suggestions

With our template suggestions you can set a layout design for your publication fast and easy

For printing your work we require a digital template in PDF or Post Script File format or a ready-for-print paper copy. Other templates are also available upon request. You can submit the digital copies either on CD-ROM or as an email attachment.

What should I keep in mind in formatting my manuscript?

Below is a short summary of points to consider while formatting your work (for DIN A4 format*):

  • left and right margins should be at least 2 centimeters
  • page numbers should be either centered or placed on the left and right sides of the page. In this case, even page numbers have to be placed on the left side and odd numbers on the right
  • the font size should not be too small, as your template will be scaled from A4 to A5*. We recommend choosing a font size no smaller than 12 pt (except for headers and footers)
  • the text block should be centered
*Naturally, other formats (such as B5) are also acceptable, or you may send us the data of your template in the end format of your wish.

A simple solution for your layout – our layout templates

You are welcome to download our formatting templates for word in Arial or Times New Roman. Please include the following information when sending your data as an email attachment:

  • your address
  • your telephone number
  • how many author copies you would like 
  • your desired cover design
  • total number of pages for your manuscript
  • should your document include pages in colour, please state how many and on which pages

Professional realisation – efficient communication – comprehensive support

As soon as we receive your template, we will produce a test print on the same or the following day and mail it to you with the contract for publication, invoice, proof of copy numbers for first printing and the registration form for VG Wort. The copy number for first printing can be adjusted according to the regulations of your university.

After proofreading the test print and cover, please issue print clearance in written form (per mail/post). If anything needs changing, notify us by email. We would also be more than happy to discuss any issues in person at our publishing house, located at Nonnenstieg 8, 37075 Göttingen.

After we receive clearance for printing, your publication will be ready within only 1-5 business days.

Your completed work will be sent to you using the fastest available postal service. You can also pick it up at our publishing house.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have or to offer our support per email, telephone or at our headquarters.
