Beginning with NACCL-20, NACCL Proceedings are published in digital format and disseminated online here at the NACCL website.1 The Proceedings of the 20th North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics, for example, is published as a set of two volumes in PDF format. As a result of going from paper to e-paper, some of the original instructions have been modified below.
北美汉语语言学会议自第二十届开始,将会议报告论文结集发表于会议主网站,每届一集(通常分为上下两卷)。各报告人为论文集提交的论文,须严格遵行以下的体例要求。2

In addition, read the recently-proposed recommendations of the Linguistic Society of America for A Unified Style Sheet for Linguistics Journals.3 In general, adhere to LSA's Language Style Sheet for preparing your manuscript for the NACCL Proceedings.

NACCL Proceedings Style Sheet -- Instructions

  1. Word-Processing Software and Formats 文件格式
  • Prepare your document using Microsoft Word and save your file as a DOC (or DOCX) file. If your file does not contain graphics, the file may optionally be saved as an RTF file (Rich Text File). Submit with your DOC file extra fonts that you have used in your file that are not normally installed on other people's computers (e.g., specific IPA font, etc.).
    提交的文章须为 MS-Word 生成的 .doc 或 .docx 文件,同时提交一份相应的 PDF 文件。
     
  • Avoid, if at all possible, using fonts that are not Unicode-compliant. (These may be old fonts from a couple of decades ago or fonts that are specific to given program and are not Unicode-based.)
    文章请尽量使用统一码(Unicode)或与统一码兼容的字符(多年前使用的一些老汉字字符在今天的电脑系统中可能已很难正确显示)。英文字体用Times 或Times New Roman,中文字体用宋体
     
  • To assist you in preparing your manuscript for the NACCL Proceedings, a NACCL template, with DOC file extension, is available for downloading here: <naccl-template.doc>. (How the file looks as a PDF file is shown here: <naccl-template-from-doc-file.pdf>.) A corresponding NACCL template, in DOCX file extension, is available for downloading here: <naccl-template.docx>. (The DOC and DOCX files were prepared using the Windows version of MS Word.)
    为方便您准备文稿,这里提供一份论文集文章体例模版供您下载使用:

           .DOC file template /.DOC文件格式模版
           .DOCX file template/.DOCX文件格式模版
           Sample of the generated PDF file/生成的PDF文件样例

    (温馨提示:虽然后面有排版格式的具体说明,但经验证明,使用模版准备文稿,或把已经写好的文章按体例要求分块复制黏贴到模版里,可节省不少时间。)

    Note: If you use OpenOffice, a NACCL template, with OTT file extension, prepared by an OpenOffice user, is available for downloading here: <naccl-template.ott>. (How the file looks as a PDF file is shown here: <naccl-template-from-ott-file.pdf>.) Save a copy of your file to DOC(X) format for your NACCL Proceedings editor(s).
    如果您用OpenOffice, 生成的OTT DOC文件格式模版在这里:<naccl-template.ott>
    相应生成的PDF文件:<naccl-template-from-ott-file.pdf>
     
  • Prepare a corresponding copy of your file as a PDF file, and be sure to embed ALL fonts into the PDF file for proper display of symbols, etc.
    提交.doc或.docx文件的同时,还须提供一份相应的PDF文件。请检查PDF文件里各字符、图标、符号、表格等等,确认都能正确显示。
     
  • The files should be camera-ready, with correct paper size, margins, etc. Hence, except for adding of pagination later when the Proceedings is put together as a set of volumes, the files should be able to be used "as is" in preparing the Proceedings.
    提交的文件在内容、格式、字符、字体、排版、版心大小、边白等各方面请务必做到“一切就绪,可照样付印”。编辑文集时除了给各篇加上页码,一般不会在其他方面做任何改动。
     
  • Hardcopy -- A hardcopy of your paper will be requested by your NACCL proceedings editor(s) if and only if complications arise in preparing your paper for e-publication.
    (Note: The NACCL editor is either the NACCL organizer(s), or one or two individuals whom the NACCL organizer designates to compile the proceedings for their hosted NACCL conference. After the NACCL Proceedings is prepared, complete with cover, pagination, etc., the files are passed along to the NACCL website editor to upload and link the PDF files to NACCL Proceedings Online.)
    编辑您的文章时如果遇到复杂的体例问题,编辑人员可能会跟您联系,请您提供文章的打印文本以资使用或参考。文集一经编成,即送交北美汉语语言学会议主网站的编辑上传发表。
