NOTES FOR EDITED BOOKS
If individual chapters have been heavily edited please make sure that you have checked with the contributing authors that the edited version is acceptable to them. Also, if there has been a long time lapse between receipt of the chapters and sending them for production, please check with the authors that the references are still up to date.
Please send us an updated address list of the contributors (email and postal addresses). Proofs will be made available for the editors in PDF format, downloadable from the web. It is the editor’s responsibility to contact the contributing authors if he/she feels that they need to be involved in checking the proofs, and to collate these amendments.
