TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Tear sheets can also refer to the unbound pages of a magazine. When I worked
for McGraw-Hill, we always had a few editions of each freshly
printed magazine delivered unbound so we could send copies to the authors
or file them for personal use. In this sense, "tear sheet" is a misnomer,
because no tearing was required.
