Proceedings:
Kent Britain WA5VJB will coordinate the publishing of the proceedings by the ARRL. We are always looking for additional papers for the proceedings. You don’t have to be a presenter to have your paper published in the proceedings. If you have an article on your latest microwave related project that you would like published, please send your article to Kent WA5VJB at wa5vjb@flash.net

Guidelines for Papers for Conference Proceedings

Guidelines for Papers for Conference Proceedings

All papers should be in electronic format. We can accept almost any type of file, Word or PDF are best choices. I prefer Word as format as it allows me to make format changes if needed. If sending a PDF, all fonts should be embedded. We can also accept EXCEL, ACCESS and Power Point files.

Paper: Size should be 8½ 11-inches.

Margins: Top and sides should be 0.75 inches; bottom must be 1 inch.

Type: You may use any font you’d like. The type should be clean and easy to read. (We usually use 12 pt Times New Roman.)

Layout: Either a one or two-column format is fine. (We usually use one column.)

Page numbers: It’s not necessary to include page numbers.

Headers/Footers: You don’t need to add any. If you do include them, it’s likely they’ll be removed, or the page shrunk to include them.

Drawings: Drawings should be embedded in the files, or sent separately for us to include. Place them where you’d like them to appear, or indicate in the text where you would like them. If placement is not indicated, drawings will run after the text. Remember that the Proceedings book will print in black and white. Multi colored graphs, etc, will be in shades of gray. Thin, light lines in drawings may drop out.

Photos: Color or black-and-white digital images, either embedded in text or as separate files. Place them where you’d like them to appear, or indicate in the text where you would like them. Don’t forget to indicate (in the text) where they should be placed. If placement is not indicated, photos will run after the text. Photos will print in gray scale. Unless there’s a specific reason, photos should 3 to 4 inches. If they’re too large, they begin to lose resolution and appear muddy.

Printing: We print what we receive. We do not copy edit (but will correct something if we notice it – or if you notice it and let us know). We do try to make all papers somewhat uniform, but we do not redo each article. Page numbers are added as we prepare the files for our printer.
