But forget about that: I just checked the Springer instructions for Philosophical studies, and, as I suspected, they accept multi-file manuscript zipped into a single archive. So my suggestion is to avoid the complications of extracting the references and instead pack both your lyx-exported .tex file and your bibliography (in a bib file) into a single archive and then upload that. How to do that, again, depends on your platform. If you are on Windows there are many utilities that allow you to create zip archives. I don't use Windows, so I can't be precise, but I vaguely remember a program called WinZip that did just that. Windows users on this list may provide more specific advice. On lInux, you'd just use the zip command from the command line. Open a terminal window, move to the directory where your tex and bib files are: $cd /my/working/directory and then issue the zip command: $zip my_manuscript_archive my_file.tex my_references.bib that will produce a file called my_manuscript_archive.zip, which you can then upload to the Springer site On the Mac, you can do the same thing, I believe. Mac users may want to provide more specific advice. Note that Springer usually requires that your .bib file contains only the references you use in your manuscript. If you have a bib file with other references (as most people do), you should save it as a new file and then eliminate all the extra references (how to do that depends on which software you use to manage your references). > Since you're a philosopher and at Texas A&M, you must know Chris Menzel. I certainly do. We were even in the same dept for a few years.
