Papers are published in English but may be published in the language
in which they are presented.
The maximum length of the paper, including notes, is limited to
twenty-five (25) double-spaced manuscript pages for featured speakers
and fifteen (15) double-spaced manuscript pages for all others.
A charge of $12.00 per page over fifteen double-spaced manuscript
pages will be assessed the author and no paper over twenty double-spaced
manuscript pages will be published. Commentaries should be limited
to five (5) double-spaced manuscript pages.
Photographs and illustrations may be included as part of a manuscript
and count towards the page limits set in number 2 above (assume
2 per page). Illustrations will be appended at the end of the
paper when published so do not leave any spaces or gaps within
your paper to accommodate illustrations. In the case of photographs
please send either original prints or scanned images (TIF files
at a resolution of at least 300 dpi). We cannot accept slides
or transparencies nor can we accept anything directly from a third
party (such as a Museum). A charge of $20.00 per photograph/illustration
will be assessed the author. The author is also responsible for
securing any required permissions. These must be sent in with
the final version of the paper.
Speakers are to submit to the editor two copies of the paper, one on CD and one in hard copy. Papers not submitted on CD will not be considered for publication.
Use American, not British spellings.
Please place diacritical marks carefully and clearly.
Always retain an exact copy of what you submit in order to insure
against loss in the mail and also to allow the editors to resolve
urgent queries without protracted correspondence.
Please use either the footnote or endnote command function when
writing your paper. Please do not type your endnotes at the end
of the paper. These have to be manually put into footnote format
and in many cases the numbers in the paper do not correspond to
the notes typed at the end of the paper. Consequently, the possibility
of errors is greatly increased. All Selected Papers will be converted
to footnote format before publication. When you are in the footnote
function of your word processor, please do not insert any spaces
or tabs between the superscripted footnote number and the text
of the note, just begin typing.
Please do not substitute the letter "l" (lower case L) for the
number "1"; it befuddles the spell-check and does not format correctly.
Also, do not substitute the letter "o" for the number "0" for
the same reasons.
