The style files were downloaded from the journal's homepage.
Note that if your document contains other LaTeX errors, the tables will not be processed correctly. Therefore if you're getting an error message about Missing number and \statsocwidth@b etc, comment out your tables and correct other errors in your code first. Then uncomment your table code, and hit "recompile from scratch" at the bottom of the error/warning message window.
Template for editors of a "contributed volume", provided by Springer, to help structure the manuscript, e.g., define the heading hierarchy. Predefined style formats are available for all the necessary structures that are supposed to be part of the manuscript.
The original template has been modified so that contribution from each author can be contained in their own folders, using the import package.
Note: These templates are not intended for the preparation of the final page layout! The final layout will be created by Springer according to their layout specifications.
