Springer provides templates for LaTex and Word users that help structure the manuscript, e.g., define the heading hierarchy.
Predefined style formats are available for all the necessary structures that are supposed to be part of the manuscript, and these formats can be quickly accessed via hotkeys or special toolbars.
Note: These templates are not intended for the preparation of the final page layout. The final layout will be created by Springer according to our layout specifications
The usage of these templates is not mandatory. Alternatively, you may either use a blank Word document or the standard LaTeX book class (for monographs) or article class (for individual contributions) and apply the default settings and styles (e.g., for heading styles, lists, footnotes, etc.).
