Science Report Template and User Guide

Rigorous formatting requirements for the publication series are intended to ensure consistent presentation, compliance with NPS graphic identity and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requirements, and accurate creation of the final versions of the report.

The Science Report series uses an MS Word template. A user guide for the template is available. Please follow the instructions in the template and user guide. Please note:

  • Reports must be based on a template downloaded no more than six months prior to submission.
  • Reports not meeting the formatting requirements will be returned to the author or submitter for revision.

To submit a report for final publication, use the online Manuscript Submittal Form (DOI only). Peer review managers, program managers, and report collaborators listed on the MSF will also be emailed during the final publication review process.

Please contact series manager Fagan Johnson with any questions not addressed at the links below.
