Notes on PDF proofs
PDF (portable document format) files are self-contained documents for viewing on screen and for printing. They contain all appropriate formatting and all fonts, so that the correct result will be shown on screen and on the printout from your local printer.
To view and print your article you will need Acrobat Reader from Adobe. This program is available for free and can be downloaded from the manufacturer:
Please note that this reader is available for a whole series of platforms which include PC, Mac, and Unix.
When preparing the PDF for emailing we will have optimized the size of the file in order to make it transmittable. This means that images may not appear in this PDF at their final resolution. The image files are not affected and the final print quality of the book will also not be affected. We do this in order to make this file of a sensible size to be able to email to you.
There are a number of points that you need to take into account.
