NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS
Articles can be on paper, but the preferred format is ASCII text files with paragraph breaks. If articles are particularly technical (ie. contain lots of sums) then Microsoft Word documents (up to version 7.0) are probably best. We should be able to cope with most common PC word processor formats. We are able to accept discs from other machines, but please check first. We can accept most common graphics formats, but vector graphic formats are much preferred to bit-mapped formats. Photographs should be prints or well-scanned photos (eg. from a PhotoCD) supplied in any common graphics format. It is the responsibility of contributing authors to clear copyright and acknowledgement matters for any material previously published elsewhere.
