In Reply to: ? about articles for the newsletter... posted by Zac on February 24, 2002 at 19:37:05:
Like Steve said, it's pretty loose for guidelines... Ideally, if an article could be written in Word, or something easily convertible into Word, and emailed to me, that would be best - it saves on me having to retype things (although I'll do that, too, if neccesary). If you are wondering what format - whatever format you've used is fine.
I also have no problem printing "technical" papers. Most people in the Society would be at least fairly interested in short papers on anatomy, physiology, systematics, biology, ecology, and evolutionary history. As long as it involves herps! :) For example, a write-up of the talk you gave at our meeting would be ideal.
I will take submissions of any length - really, really long articles could even be done as "two-parters" if neccessary, and even real short two paragraph to one-column blurbs.
I'll even print herp related cartoons (Far Side, etc) - I will of course ask permission to reprint anything that is copyrighted. Which reminds me, if possible, including a "sources cited" or bibliography page would be best (just in case)for any researched articles. (Something I should have been doing for the articles I wrote in the past.)
Photos can either be emailed to me, or for hardcopy prints, mail them to me, I'll scan them in, and mail them back to you.
Let me know if you need any more info.
: I was wondering what kind of guide lines one is to follow if they want to write an article for the newsletter. How many paragraphs, What to do with photos and any other odds and ends. Thanks a bunch
