Journal Paper Template

To download the CHI Journal Template, click on the following link: Journal Paper Template.

For video instructions on using the Journal paper template, please click on the following link: Journal Paper Template Video.

To use the CHI journal template, open the template file as you would a regular Word file and immediately save it as "CHI paper (your last name).doc." This is your working copy. In your working copy of the file, replace the contents with your paper. 

If you are unused to working with styles, you will be surprised how simple they can be employed: place your cursor in the text (e.g., on a sub-heading) and select Format/Styles and Formatting from the toolbar. This will open the styles menu, and you can select e.g. "CHI Subtitle" or "CHI Subsubtitle" as appropriate. Each Style in the menu is written in its own style so you can see what format your text string will take. Styles apply to paragraphs so every hard return allows you to employ a different style.

The paper template has the correct margins in place, and you must use the provided styles (all starting with "CHI" in the Styles menu - please ignore the default styles). The document you saved as a sample file illustrates the correct use of the styles. All figures and tables must fit within the page size constraints, and their contents must be clearly readable. Moreover, illustrations must be legible and useful to the reader when printed in black and white in the size available.

Note: pasting content from other documents will more than likely import styles into the provided paper, which may prove problematic to you (and later, for us). It is strongly recommended that you move your content to Microsoft Notepad before pasting it into the provided paper. This will strip out all formatting data and provide a much cleaner and efficient working environment in the provided paper. To do this simply copy and paste your content into the Notepad application, then copy and paste from the Notepad application to the provided MS Word paper.
