Technical Instructions for MS WORD and Compatible Formats
To prepare your manuscript in a format compatible with MS WORD (*.doc, *.docx, or *.rtf), please use the template files example.doc or example.rtf and consider the Generic Manuscript Style. Please use the Microsoft equation editor and not the graphic mode when compiling your equations.
Prepare a PDF File from a MS WORD Document
The easiest way to produce a PDF file from a document compatible with MS WORD (*.doc, *.docx, or *.rtf) is using commercial software from Adobe. It offers five Free Online Trials to convert any document to PDF.
Another possibility for Windows (98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7/8) systems using free software is described here:
Download the Adobe Postscript Driver and install it by executing the file. In the setup programme choose [Local Printer], under available Ports choose [FILE: Local Ports], and then [Generic Postscript Printer]. After successful installation you can access your MS Word document and print it using the newly installed Generic Postscript Printer. This will produce a postscript file of your document called "filename.prn".
Then download the programmes Gsview and Ghostscript and install them by executing the self-extracting files. In the setup programme, always choose the default. After successful installation you can start the programme Gsview and open the previously produced postscript file "filename.prn". Then go to [File] [Convert]. In the menu, choose device: pdfwrite, resolution: 600, mark all pages and click okay. This will produce a PDF file of your document.
