What type of disks should be used?
CODESRIA regularly uses 3½-inch diskettes (1.4 or 2MB), CD-ROMs, ZIP disks (100MB PC formatted). You can use single-density, double-density or high-density disks (but avoid using data-compression software without consultation with CODESRIA). Other sizes of disks or magnetic tape are not acceptable as CODESRIAcannot check their content in-house, and will need to send them to outside agencies for conversion.
Please ensure that all disks are well labelled, and that the labelling makes clear that the text is the final version. Write your surname and a shortened version of the manuscript title on the label of each disk. Please also write the date that you send the disks to us on the label.
How should text and files be organised?
It is essential that you supply a full list of file names used, indicating what each file contains. For example:
Contents of files
Chapter 1: Chapter 2:
Do not put all the text into one large file – this is difficult to process
and a file-error may result, restricting access to the entire text.
