The Di Harding Awards Back Issues Contents Indexes
The Journal is published quarterly and issued to all paid up Members in February, May, August and November each year. New Members joining later in the calendar year will receive back issues for the year of joining.
The Journal Editor is always happy to consider articles by Members for publication, although the Editor reserves the right not to publish, and will advise the Submitter if this is the case and the reason for non-publication.To assist the Editor in this, the following Submission Guidelines should be noted :
Typed, word-processed or handwritten articles will be considered. The preference is for word-processed documents sent by e-mail. The Editor uses Microsoft Word 2007 and can therefore accept documents in earlier Word formats or RTF (Revisable Text Format). For documents prepared using other software, please contact the Editor for advice. The preferred Font is Arial 10 point as this produces a reasonable size on the A5 format of the Journal pages. Headings are 12 point. Do not send text as image files as these cannot be edited. Any images should be sent separately - do not embed them in your document. If you do send images then they should preferably be in JPG format, of 300 dpi resolution, and no larger than 3 Mb, and if there are more than one, please send each as an attachment to a separate e-mail. As the Journal is printed in black and white, please ensure that any graphics are of good quality so that they can be reproduced well.
For typescript or manuscript please ensure that your article is legible, and preferably double spaced on one side of the paper only. As this sort of submission needs to be retyped or scanned, then there is no guarantee that they will appear in the next issue of the Journal. For longer articles, it may be necessary to serialise them. Any graphics or illustrations should also be placed on separate sheets of paper. For material to be returned, please ensure that you include a stamped self-addressed envelope or International Reply Coupons. Copyright in the text remains with the authors, but please ensure that you acknowledge copyright in other material, e.g. scans of Census returns are copyright The National Archives.
The Isle of Wight Family History Society takes no responsibility for articles submitted to the Journal, nor does it necessarily agree with opinions expressed. Authors are expected to have checked for factual accuracy and to have obtained the necessary permissions for lengthy quotations and the use of illustrations.
