The Publication Process
Every AAAI Press chapter receives a professional editorial review. Text is edited for format; organization; correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation; textual clarity; appropriate use of figures and tables; and correct use of abbreviations, acronyms, and symbols. We do this to maintain a high standard of accuracy, quality, and consistency from chapter to chapter. We also do this so that your chapter will be made accessible to the broadest readership possible within not only the scientific and academic communities, but also the business and government communities who also form a portion of our readership. Information about AAAI Press style and format can be by reading the Author Guidelines. We urge you to do so.
Because problems in reference styles often require significant copyediting, and some of the common LaTeX styles don't match our style, I would also like to specifically remind you to be careful about following the AAAI Press reference style.
The production guidelines may seem rather overwhelming, particularly the details of style and format--but much of that information is included to indicate to the authors that the copy edited text may include changes made to conform to AAAI Press house style--not just the personal whims of the copy editor.
