ASME Journals Digital Submission Tool

Final Submission

Preparing and Submitting Your Final Digital Files


 

These author guidelines contain information to assist the user in preparing and submitting the final versions of technical and non-technical works that have been accepted for publication in an ASME journal.

 

Following these instructions for the preparation of the production-ready files of your accepted paper will eliminate any delays in the publication of your paper.

 

The Editor’s office will review all submitted files and either Approve them for production or Disapprove them so that the author can make corrections and upload new files that are ready for production.

 

.doc and .docx
Both .doc and .docx files are acceptable.
