Review our Manuscript Preparation Guidelines

Each journal has a set of individual author guidelines which provide advice on how to prepare your paper for submission. We also provide here further detail on specific topics which may be valuable as you prepare your submission.


Preparing Your Submission

Wiley follows a House Style guide to help our copyeditors and proofreaders maintain consistency in language, formatting, and visual style. Authors may find the guides below useful for understanding technical conventions. Note that some journals may not adhere to all aspects of the Wiley House Style, in which case please prepare your submission according to the specifications set out in the Author Guidelines of your chosen journal.



Preparing Supporting Information

If you have supporting information for your manuscript, Wiley will host an approved version with the article online. Our Supporting Information FAQs provide general advice on choosing acceptable materials for supporting information. You should always consult the relevant journal's author guidelines to see whether supporting information is accepted.


Preparing Figures and Illustrations

Our guidelines help you prepare figures, illustrations, and other electronic artwork for publication – so you can achieve the highest possible quality of reproduction in both the online and print versions of your article.
