Users of Word 2007/DOCX

Science can now accept manuscripts prepared in Word 2007 and its .docx format, both at submission and revision. However, we strongly discourage the use of the Word 2007 equation editor. Instead please use Mathtype or Word's legacy equation editor, which can be obtained through the "Insert" ribbon and the "Object menu" on the "text" panel.

The default equation editor included in Microsoft Word 2007 has not yet been shown to reliably produce accurate MathML, which we use for displaying equations online.
