/// CHEERS! enthusiastically and (well) cheerfully welcomes articles and programs from potential authors — we want to read stuff from other people!
We are interested in how-to-do-it articles, hardware/software reviews, use notes on popular applications software, and programs in any languages supported on the ///. Particular emphasis is given to programs that are instructive, and/or provide needed utilities.
The guidelines are rather simple: submit your text on DISK, along with source files for any programs, or source and invokable files for invokable modules. Disks should be in SOS or (gasp) DOS 3.3 or ProDOS formats. Articles, documentation and other “real text” may be in either ASCII or Pascal text files. Try not to depend on complex text formatting, unusual fonts, or graphics — remember that /// CHEERS! is designed for text output to both the screen and the wide variety of printers out there. We CAN accept articles and other text (not programs) in printed form, but note that page rate payments to authors are less in this case.
Follow the example of text in this edition regarding style and formatting. Text should NOT be right-justified.
We will acknowledge your submission by mail as soon as it is received. Rejected submissions will be returned to the author. We may also request revisions in text or programs. You will be notified by mail or phone if your submission is accepted, along with the approximate publication date.
You may request that programs be marked as “not for commercial use.” Our normal practice and preference is that A.P.P.L.E. shall retain copyright to all published articles and programs. Other arrangements may be made, by discussion with the Editor.
Payment to authors is made at the rate of .72 cents per character for all published material (text and programs) submitted on disk. On-paper article submissions are paid at the rate of .5 cents per character. As noted above, programs must be submitted on disk.
