of Past Publications
We are requesting that members
and nonmembers alike consider the submission of articles or artwork
to the Society's award winning publication - our monthly NEWSLETTER.
The topics can include anything in paleontology, including the history
of paleontology, paleoecology, paleoclimates, evolution, relevant geology,
fossils, fossil sites and trips, or works on specific fossil groups,
etc. The contributions should be original, first submission,
works or reviews of books or other articles. Artwork, graphs, tables,
etc. should also be original, or come with legal releases for reproduction
from the original publishers. Hardcopy manuscripts should preferably
be typed, or, if unavoidable, neatly handwritten. The submissions should
include a return address and phone number or E-mail at which the editor
may contact you.
Word processor and computer
technology also allows people to submit manuscripts by computer disk
or E-mail. With E-mail or disks, we are capable of reading and translating
many word processors including Wordperfect, Microsoft Word, Windows
Write, ASCII, and many others, usually regardless of which version the
author is using. We encourage submission by E-mail or word processor
disk since this reduces the likelihood of errors in transcribing text
from the written page. We accept either 3 ½ inch floppy disks or CDs.
Those wishing to submit by disk will have the disk returned after submission
if they wish, with a copy both of the original submission and a copy
of the final article as printed. You should also include a hard copy
of the paper. Contact the editors below for more information on digital

for the factual accuracy of their submissions, and that views expressed
