Writing for the Quarterly
AGS Quarterly Editorial Board seeks feature
articles from members. Send your submissions to the AGS office in
care of the AGS Quarterly Editorial Board.
Images should be sharp high-definition prints or on CD
We often must crop photos so they can appear vertically or
horizontally. Please provide as much extra space around the item
you're photographing as you can
The suggested length for feature articles is about 2,500 words
Book reviews are also encouraged. To suggest a
book for review or to ask about reviewing a book, write to the AGS
office, or e-mail:
"The right of one author to quote another has
long been recognized by copyright law, provided that the quotation
is only a small portion of the original and that credit is given. "
"One paragraph from a book or long article is certainly fair use,
but one from a three-paragraph article would not be. In the latter
case, reword to avoid outright copying and give credit to the
source." (From The Copyright Handbook, State University of New York
at Albany (Sept. 1987), p. 6.
