Submit an Abstract: using our online manuscript tracking system it couldn’t be easier. Simply submit your invited/proposed abstract, a brief written proposal, which should contain keywords to illustrate the subject area and scope. The abstract should present an overview of what your chapter will focus on. The editor appointed by IntechOpen checks every abstract to evaluate their suitability for inclusion in the edited volume in terms of the overall scope and vision. If it meets approval, it is time to submit your fully drafted chapter.
