The Logistics Spectrum, the official publication of SOLE,
promotes professional development and advances in logistics through examination and discussion of the latest technology, techniques and professional issues in the field. The Spectrum has a worldwide distribution of over 4,000 copies. It is recognized as the premier voice of scientific logistics.

Information for Authors
We prefer articles 2,500 to 3,500 words in length. Shorter articles are acceptable, but we will condense more lengthy articles.
Submit only original, unpublished drafts that are not being submitted elsewhere. For theme-related articles, contact the theme coordinator. You may email your drafts, or send one printed copy as well as a copy on disk. For general submissions, send all articles to the Spectrum Editor at email@example.com.
Number all pages. On the title page, include the author's name, address (postal and email), and phone and fax numbers.
Place references, footnotes, tables and figure captions after the text. Footnotes to the text should appear as superscript Arabic numerals. Number tables and figures in order of their appearance using Arabic numerals; each table and figure should have a brief descriptive title. Refer to each illustration and explain its relevance to the article.
When using mathematical notations, use typewritten letters, numbers and symbols instead of an embedded formula. Distinguish between numbers and letters (such as "1" and "I") that might be misidentified.
Submit a personal photo and provide a biographical sketch that includes degrees, professional activities, SOLE membership information (offices and activities, chapter affiliation, CPL status) and other works published.
Submission of a paper does not guarantee acceptance. Submitted works become the property of SOLE. No submissions will be returned.
We do not pay for material we publish. We reserve the right to make editorial changes and may shorten some submissions because of page constraints.
Use the following style:
Submit each illustration as a separate file in either tiff or eps format. Do not embed illustrations in the text. We cannot use PowerPoint files; however, we will accept the original hard copy of an illustration. Please identify where each illustration should be placed within the text (example: INSERT FIGURE 1 HERE).
