Preparing Your Abstract(s)

Authors must use a Microsoft Word file template (download it by clicking here), identified as ALAGO2020 template.doc. Only the styles listed below should be used, as shown in the example abstract, which you may also download: ALAGO2020example.pdf.

Equations and tables may be included in abstracts, as well as photos and figures.

  • Enter the title by clicking on the text and replacing it with your title. The title should be in title case, and does not need punctuation at the end. If a colon is used to indicate a sub-title, please use an upper case letter following it.

  • Enter the authors' names in the click-box. If there is more than one address for the authors, the names should be followed by a superscripted number to indicate the appropriate address.

  • Corresponding authors should be indicated with an asterisk (not superscript) and their email address presented in the address box as follows: *correspondence: email@email.com

  • Enter the addresses and email addresses in the click-boxes. Email addresses should be typed in brackets. Insert or delete further address lines as required.

  • For section, headers should be written in SECTION HEADING style (ARIAL 11 bold)

  • For text, use the style BODY TEXT (ARIAL 10 plain). Citations should be indicated in Organic Geochemistry style [e.g. (Azevedo et al., 2008)].

  • Graphics: all figures must be in either PNG, GIF, TIFF, or JPEG format. Please supply figures with a 300 dpi resolution at least. Very high-resolution figures may impair quality of publication. Please ensure that the image files do not include details which will not be clear at resolutions below 150dpi and printed at the actual size (100%).

  • For references use the style REFERENCES (ARIAL 10 plain) and should be applied, and they should be written in following the format: : Azevedo, D. A.; Tamanqueira, J. B.; Dias, J. C. M.; Carmo, A. P. B.; Landau, L.; Gonçalves, F. T. T., 2008. Multivariate statistical analysis of diamondoid and biomarker data from Brazilian basin oil samples. Fuel 87, 2122-2130.
