Guidelines for contributions
Please note that the PPA Newsletter will not publish Case Reports or similar papers which should be submitted to peer-reviewed journals for potential publication. The only exception are reflective papers that present replies to studies published in earlier issues of the PPNL. The PPA Newsletter is publishing members’ articles and short reports on items such as relevant conferences, conference reflections, new (i.e. recent) excavations of interest to the PPA Membership, newly available collections, new research venues, materials of diagnostic interest (e.g. ‘Curious Cases’) that require other members’ help and / or input regarding a possible diagnosis, and similar items of interest.
Text: All manuscripts must be written in English. The preferred font is Times New Roman, 12 point.
Illustrations: Please submit electronic files as separate additions to your text file in JPEG format. For electronic files, the images must be scanned or objects photographed at 600 d.p.i (minimum resolution), to produce a good clear image at the size to be printed in the Newsletter. Images scanned at low resolutions are not suitable for printed publications, and cannot be used.
Annotated Bibliography: Send us the references of recent articles published in lesser-known locations in the last few months on paleopathology topics. There is no need to send references from AJBA, JAS, IJO, or BAI, as paleopathology articles from these journals will be listed in the annotated bibliography anyway. The references can be in any language, but if you could send in a 1-2 sentence summary of the content in English that would be really helpful. We will correct the English if this is not your first language. Please submit these references using the AJBA format for citations.
