Annual Report Layout Rules
In order to standardise the layout of our annual reports (and publications in general) we ask you to follow the rules listed here:
- In the title of the annual report all nouns, adjectives and verbs start with a capital letter.
- Symbols shall be set italic while units are written roman.
Chemical symbols have to be roman.
LaTeX Examples: $E$ = 10 MeV, $\rho$(Al) = 2.7 g/cm$^3$.
- Symbols should not be used at the beginning of a sentence.
Example: Gamma rays were detected ... instead of $\gamma$ rays ...
- Acronyms are to be explained on their first occurrence.
Example: The random-phase approximation (RPA) is used ...
- Adjectives and nouns that belong together and are used together like an adjective, are connected with a hyphen.
Examples: gamma ray but gamma-ray detection
shell model but shell-model calculations
free electron but free-electron laser
- Figure layout:
- Tick marks are inside the frame of the figure.
- The size of the axis labels should be at least text size.
- Text inside the figures should be of readable size.
- Axis labels are of the form quantity / unit
Examples: $E_\gamma$ / keV
($\Gamma/E^3$) / (keV/MeV$^3$)
Film thickness / mm
- References are written in the form e.g.
Author list, Phys. Rev. C 66 (2002) 024310
Author list, Nucl. Phys. A 620 (1997) 277
If the author list contains more than three authors, it is written in the form:
Author1, Author2 et al.,
Author is written as e.g. R. Beyer, ...
Ronald Schwengner, Andreas Wagner
