Articles for Publication.
We often receive articles from authors, PR agencies, and companies on speculation, i.e., the paper is sent to us so we can have it peer reviewed and determine if it is suitable for publication in FE. If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be notified and asked to send us the following:
A 3.5-inch DS/HD disk with the paper's contents on it (yes, we have received disks with non-related contents) in MSWord 6.0 or 7.0 or an ASCII file of the prose. Artwork (graphs, charts, line shots, micrographs, and photographs) must be submitted on hard copy. Do not send a disk with the artwork embedded in the MSWord file.
The typed hard copy must be double spaced with a word count of between 2000 and 3000 words; the paper must be computer-generated on either a Mac or a PC. The hard copy of your paper must be the same as it appears on the disk. It is the author's responsibility to make certain that the hard copy is an exact printout of what is on the disk.
What about exceptions? There are none. In order to publish a monthly magazine we must have the cooperation of all who contribute to the editorial content of FE. We encourage our readers to submit papers to be considered for publication. All that we ask is that you meet the above guidelines; and we will do all that we can to ensure that your work is presented in a professional and timely manner.
If you have any questions, give us a call.
