    Connexions Physics: Reviewer ChecklistsThe checklists below should be used by reviewers to ensure that editors have followed the guidelinesassociated with the following tasks:

    y C reation of art manuscripty D evelopmental editingy W riting of alt text for imagesy C opyediting

    Guidelines for the above processes are presented in the following documents.

    y CNX Physics_Art Manuscript_guidelinesy CNX _Physics_ D evelopmentalEditor_Guidelines_11-21-11

    y CNX _Physics_alt_text_guidelines_11-17-2011y CNX Physics_ C E Guidelines_v2_11-03-2011y Legend_v7_Physics_11-03-2011

    Art Manuscript/Art Specs Checklist All illustrations in the chapter manuscript have a corresponding document in the art manuscript.

    Photos do not. All illustrations and photos should have a figure number. All illustrations and photos should have an entry in the Art Log with all relevant information.

    Each art spec document contains a complete spec for one illustration. (D


    E: not relevant) Each piece is designated as either Urone Pickup, N ew art, Photo/Image Pickup, or Photo/Image

    Modification S ketches and notes to production are clear. S amples are included where appropriate and are labeled clearly as SAMPLE ON LY S pec refers to old Urone figure number if recreating/modifying S ketches are not done using W ord drawing tool. (If they are, please make sure components of

    the drawing e.g., arrows and labels are appropriately placed, take a screen shot, and replaceoriginal drawing with the screen shot)

    Any requested changes to old Urone figure are specified in a clear way F igure number changed to new format ( F igure_[chapter]_[section]_[number], e.g.,

    F igure_03_05_02.)

    General F ile has appropriate filename that reflects editorial stage.

    SME comments appropriate edits made; if not made, justification for no edit provided in acomment

    Tabl es all tables numbered and formatted per guidelines Equa tions (in- line) all math equations/expressions containing any variable and/or

    superscripts/subscripts is an M S Equation 3.0 object; equations are properly formatted perguidelines

    Equa tions (on sep ara te line) - all math expressions containing any variable and/orsuperscripts/subscripts is an M S Equation 3.0 object; Equation numbers that appeared in Uronehave been deleted and replaced with a comment noting the original equation number

    Equa tion o bj ects ( all ) -- Vectors in bold, not italics; magnitudes of vectors in italics, no bold;units in Roman; units always specified; subscripts almost always Roman (see Urone 2E Glossaryfor exceptions)

    R efe rences to Equ a tions references by equation number have been replaced by the equationitself

    R efe rences to othe r modu les/ch apte rs by number have been removed (preferred) or replacedby the title of the chapter/module and tagged per guidelines; note to production included as acomment

    R efe rences to Ex a mp les are by title, not number Misconception al e rts and other Call outs added per S ME comments Summ ary bullets are present for each module, excluding intro module; glossary terms are not

    tagged as such in the summary Key te rms tagged as a term on first mention within the module and in the Glossary, but not in

    the Summary Gloss ary -- appears in any module that contains any key terms tagged as such inthe module text; otherwise may be omitted

    problems, have been re-numbered and tagged per guidelines P hotos all are CC -BY and caption includes credit Ca ptions have been edited to reflect any changes to/replacements of Urone art/photos A lt text all photos and illustrations and tables contain alternate text; an empty alt tag is

    permissible only if the caption provides all necessary information A lt text does not include formatted text or equation objects; language and style is consistent

    with CNX Physics_alt_text_guidelines

    E nd-of-Module Conceptual Questions and Problems Conceptu al Questions have been inserted near the end of the appropriate module from the

    EOC Problems/ Solutions document. ( Some modules may have none, but all of the original end-of-chapter C onceptual Questions should be accounted for across modules.)

    P robl ems and A nswe rs to eve ry othe r p robl em have been inserted at the end of theappropriate module from the EO C Problems/ Solutions document; all math content is present viaequation objects.
