More information about the font

The font we will use is called “Gulliver” and was designed by graphic design artist, Gerard Unger.
This specific version of the Gulliver font has been customised for STM publishing and is exclusive to Elsevier.

Mathematical symbols are not affected by the new typeset models.

Elsevier, as well as the American Mathematics Society, the American Physical Society, IEEE and the American Institute of Physics, is a participant in the STIX (Scientific and Technical Information Exchange)
font creation project. STIX is developing a comprehensive set of fonts that serve the scientific and engineering community in the process from manuscript creation through final publication, both in electronic and print formats. For more information, see:
