The DØ Collaboration has developed an internal review and approval procedure for any analysis to be presented outside the Collaboration. Details are summarized in the Approval Procedure for DØ Analyses. Notes and papers should follow the standard DØ style, and plots should be made using the recommended MACRO (an example on how to use it).

   

A separate approval procedure for Tevatron combinations has been agreed to by both CDF and DØ. DØ results to be used in a combination must have prior collaboration approval following the standard DØ procedure given above.

   

Conference Note:

A Conference Note is a summary of an analysis. The Note can be distributed outside of the Collaboration for presentation at conferences, after it receives approval by the Collaboration. Thus it should include all numbers/plots that we want to be shown at conferences. In most cases, this is the first step towards publication. The note should generally consist of two main parts: a first draft for publication and an appendix with additional information for conference presentations. The template for the DØ conference note is a modified version of that for Phys. Rev. Letters. and Phys. Rev. D. It requires a REVTeX-4 environment obtained via "setup tex; setup revtex" on CluEDØ If you run into the format problem of US Letter vs A4, try "dvips -t letter filename".

Publication:

Papers intended for publication should be prepared using PRL/PRD template (PLB accepts PRL/PRD format) and should have the latest author list. It requires a REVTeX-4 environment obtained via "setup tex; setup revtex" on CluED0 If you run into the format problem of US Letter vs A4, try " dvips -t letter filename". Here are some general guidelines of how to publish results and where to publish our papers:

a) We submit most of our short papers to Phys. Rev. Letters; If PRL says no, Phys. Rev. D Rapid Comm. or Phys. Lett. B will be the next option.
b) In cases that we have doubt that a paper would be accepted by PRL or we need extra space to describe the analysis/result, we shall consider submitting in the first instance to PRD Rapid Comm., PRD Article, and Phys. Lett. B.
c) We shall submit all our long papers to Phys. Rev. D.

Note: In cases where there is some discussion about which journal is most appropriate, the decision should be made on a case-by-case basis by primary authors and conveners with advice from the EB and consent from the Physics Coordinator and the Spokespeople (practically, send them an email with your reasoning).

Visualizing your edits in LaTex: Use: latexdiff to prepare changes in your manuscript.
Simple usage on clued0: ~hirosky/bin/latexdiff old_version.tex new_version.tex > diffs.tex ; latex diff.tex
This will produce a version of the document with deletions/additions clearly marked.
