## IJF article submissions

#### Guidelines

For questions regarding book reviews, contact Dr Monica Adya.

#### Online supplements

Online supplements for accepted articles (e.g., data, computer code and unpublished appendixes) should be emailed to the IJF editorial office. They will appear on this site, along with your article, once it is published.

#### LaTeX instructions

Authors wanting to submit papers created using LaTeX are advised to use the following template

\documentclass[11pt,3p,review,authoryear]{elsarticle}
\journal{International Journal of Forecasting}
\bibliographystyle{ijf}
\biboptions{longnamesfirst}

\begin{document}
\title{Title of paper goes here}
\begin{abstract}
This is the abstract
\end{abstract}
\begin{keyword}
Keyword 1\sep Keyword 2\sep
\end{keyword}

\maketitle

\section{Introduction}

. . .

\end{document}


The ijf.bst file needs to be copied to the same directory as your article. You may also like to use the ijf.bib file which includes all papers published in the IJF.

More instructions about the elsarticle class and the various options (such as how to deal with authors having different addresses) are available on the Elsevier site.

It is simplest to submit the paper as a pdf file. After a paper is accepted, we will request the tex file and supplementary files.

The Editor-in-Chief, Rob J Hyndman, writes a blog on research issues. A selection of his articles are linked below.
