  • Chapters will contain author’s identification and affiliation, an abstract, a list of keywords, and a list of References / Bibliography. Chapters may have appendices, if appropriate.
  • The numbering for the Figures, Tables, Equations, as well as the citation of References is internal to the chapter, independent from any chapter number that may be attributed later in the book.
  • Each Chapter will have a cover page, included by the editors, with a Chapter number, to allow for the chapter to be referenced in the Table of Contents of the book. Internal parts of each Chapter, such as the Chapter sections, for example, will not be included in the Table of Contents.
  • In this added cover page for each chapter, extra information may be included (optional), depending on the chapter authors’ interest, to reference external links (preferably provided by the chapter co-authors), with additional material prepared by the authors, such as listing of codes, additional problems, problem solutions, etc.
  • The intended content for a chapter may be split in two or more chapters, in case the amount of information needed to be included in the particular chapter leads to an exceeding number of pages.
  • The chapters must be sent along with signed letters of the cession of copyrights.
  • The submitted file with the book chapter is expected to be made preferably in MS Word, if possible.

Each chapter is expected to be prepared as a co-authorship by researchers involved in, or collaborating with, the Research, Development & Innovation (R,D&I) Project at UnB, “Technological Demonstration Platform for Inverse Methods and Uncertainty Modeling Integrity of Structures and Components”.
