Author Line

First names may be spelled out or only given as initials. Follow the original manuscript.

Initials are always spaced with periods (e.g., M. S. Smith) except when hyphenated (e.g., M.-S. Smith).

Name prefixes such as Van, De, Der, La, Le, etc. should be left capitalized or lowercase, according to how they are given in the manuscript.

Compound proper names are capitalized after the hyphen; e.g., Jean-Michel.

Use a comma before “and” with three or more authors.
