Subject:I Need ideas to compose Author Geuidelines... From:"Hoffmaster, Robert (RHOF)" <RHOF -at- CHEVRON -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 1 Feb 1999 13:04:06 -0800
Any suggestions where/how to gather good ideas describing what to include,
etc in "Author's Guidelines". I need to compose a rather detailed set of
guidelines for potential authors in the social sciences/journalisim to
follow while preparing and submitting their completed manuscripts. My
client's hardware/software/formats needs are rather flexable, so
specifications relating to those areas are loose at this time.
I have already found and viewed many "model" Author Guidelines on various
web sites, but none really are what I'm looking for, or don't contain enough
