‘House Style’ rules for Magna articles

Several authors, past and present, have expressed the view that some guidance on ‘House Style’ rules would aid the writing of articles for the Friends’ magazine. To this end, the editor is producing guidance that we hope to have available here online in December 2017. It will be available for download in .pdf format.

Guidance for Magna articles

The sole criteria for article content is that it should be based on archival records held at The National Archives, Kew, or linked to other archives. As a general guideline, the word count should be between a minimum of 1,500 words and a maximum of 3,700 words (including notes), and articles should be presented without sub-headings. Any photographic and pictorial content should be of high resolution and supplied by the author with full references and copyright clearance. Arrangements will be made to upload all files.

Would any member/author wishing to contribute an article to the magazines, please contact the editor@ftna.org.uk as soon as possible before each editorial deadline, in order to confirm details of their edition place.

Full details can be found in the ‘House Style’ rules which we hope to have available here online in December 2017, but if you have any queries regarding the above, please contact the editor@ftna.org.uk.

Article Library

In the future, we are planning to compile an article library accessible from the members’ area of the website. This will hold indexed articles by members that it has not been possible to include within the limited space of the twice-yearly Magna magazines.  Anyone interested in contributing to the library should contact the editor@ftna.org.uk.

 

Outreach Newsletter

The latest edition of Outreach was issued in October 2017.

Articles in Outreach are short items only, intended to update members every two months on project developments, funding and events.

The next edition of Outreach will be issued in December 2017. The editorial deadline for articles or information to be sent to the editor@ftna.org.uk is Wednesday 6 December 2017.
