Formatting of Papers
Since Board members will most often read your papers online, we require the papers to be submitted in a format that facilitates their placement on the BOM secure website.
Our preferred format is Adobe Acrobat PDF. (Email Jeff Lowery if you have questions about file compatibility.) Papers will be accepted in Microsoft Word (*.doc), Rich Text (*.rtf), and Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf) formats. Most word processing programs will allow you to save your work in one or more of these formats.
Please include your name and page number on each page. This should be the first line of text in your papers.
Please use standard fonts and page sizes. Endnotes are preferable to footnotes.
Always keep a hard copy, and an electronic copy, of your submitted papers. BOM is not responsible for electronic transmission errors or files lost in the process of dissemination. Keep a copy in the event files are lost or damaged.
