TPG Article Submittals

Instructions to Authors

The TPG accepts articles of modest length for publication. Submittals should be no more than approximately 3200 words, or twelve typed pages, double spaced. Longer articles may be divided into parts (e.g. part 1 and part II), but this is not encouraged. Articles may be technical or professional in nature. General topics are listed below. Articles containing news of importance to professional geologists will also be considered. Except for news articles, or articles containing dated materials, submittals should be sent to AIPG headquarters twelve weeks in advance of expected publication. Some technical topic issues are planned up to one year before printing, therefore early submittals will be preferred.

Manuscripts should have the following section:

Key Words
Author(s) with CPG number and address
Tables if included
Figures with captions if included
Appendix(es) if included
References Cited

One original and an electronic copy of each manuscript should be submitted. Articles may also be sent via e-mail to aipg@aipg.org. Headquarters uses Word for Windows, which is preferred, but any translatable files are acceptable.

Graphics should be clear, camera-ready, line drawings whenever possible. Photographs (color or black and white) are also encouraged. Whenever possible, drawings may be submitted on diskette in jpg, tiff, gif, ai, eps, psd or other standard formats. Graphics saved electronically should be 300 dpi.

TPG wants color photographs. Photographs alone may be submitted for the cover. They should have a geologic theme and an informational caption.
