4.2.4. Camera-ready documents

In the case of documents intended for direct reproduction (camera-ready), the originating department must ensure that all the necessary corrections have been made to the text, as no further changes can be introduced at the reproduction stage, other than in exceptional circumstances.

The text must be carefully reread after it has been typed and before the final page layout is established. The page layout must also undergo thorough typographical checks before production can begin.

Camera-ready text should be paginated continuously starting with the title page and including blank pages. It should be noted that, in general, sections and chapters start on a recto (right-hand) page, bearing an odd number. If a section or chapter should end on a recto page, it must be followed by a blank page to make up the verso (left-hand) page, bearing an even number. For example, if Chapter 1 ends on page 19, page 20 will be blank and Chapter 2 will begin on page 21.

The space before a title or subtitle should be larger than that which separates it from the text.

There should be two carriage returns between paragraphs and subparagraphs.

Do not start a page with the last line of a paragraph. If this is the case, it is preferable to leave a line on the previous page, even if it exceeds the margins. Avoid ending a page with a title or subtitle, a dash or the first line of an enumeration (a list).

Quotations and enumerations should not be indented.
