Trevithick Society Journals

Want to be a contributor? We have a few guidlines for manuscripts:

*For preference manuscripts should be typed or word processed in 11 or 12 point font size.
*Preferred paper size is A4.
*Digital images should have a resolution of not less than 300dpi.
*Manuscripts should have margins on all sides of not less than 2cm.
*Paragraphs should be blocked (one line spacing between consecutive paragraphs) and not indented.
*If the manuscript is created using MS Word, please do not use the ‘footnote’ creation facility, as this is not compatible with the typesetting software and causes extra work.

If you have a potential contribution for submission and cannot submit it electronically, do not be put off but contact the Editor. There is no minimum or maximum number of words, the quality of the content is what matters.


Please forward with your article a short biographical note for our ‘Notes on Contributors’.
