Recommendations for Manuscript Layouts

Please follow the hyperlink to access the website of Potsdam University Library.

Font Size and Line Spacing

Please note that in order to obtain an easily legible font size, the number of words should not exceed 7 to 11 words per line. The line spacing should amount to 1.15 times of the font size (for a font size of 10 pt for continuous text of a page in DIN A5 format a line spacing of at least 11.5 pt would be advisable).


Your manuscript should begin with page number five because cover pages and an imprint will be added by the University Press.
