AUTHORS: Please choose keywords for indexing your paper from the
Approved Indexing Keyword List to the maximum extent possible.
When you submit a paper through Manuscript
Central, you will be provided with a picklist from which to
choose your keywords. The picklist contains indexing terms from
Approved Indexing Keyword List.
Outside of Manuscript
Central you can also get a copy of the indexing keyword list
by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
An autoreply will be generated that contains the list. We suggest
that you obtain an updated keyword list before submitting any manuscript
as new keywords come into use from time-to-time.
Use of these keywords ensures that your paper is accessible through
the major indexing services. You may sometimes find that you need
to coin your own keywords in order to make your paper accessible
through search by an appropriate audience. Keep in mind that keywords
are best chosen broadly. Avoid the temptation to construct a set
of keywords that uniquely identify your topic. When you coin a keyword,
please underscore it, highlight it with a marker, or otherwise call
attention to it. We will add it to the AP-S supplementary list.
(The editor reserves the right to modify keywords for consistency
within the list when necessary.) If you are considering coining
a keyword, please also see the comments
of our previous Editor, L. Wilson Pearson, regarding keywords.
You will need to use the search feature of your browser to find
the best keyword(s) to describe your work. Typically, two to three
words are sufficient. Submit these keywords with your paper when
it is ready for publication if you have not already done so through
The keywords for your paper can be sent by e-mail to Trevor Bird,
Be sure to provide all relevant information so that your paper can
be quickly identified. Please know that your paper can not be sent
to press until proper keywords have been selected.
