AUUGN: The Journal of AUUG Inc.
Current as at March 20th, 1995
Contributions to AUUGN are always welcome. AUUGN is put together on a
voluntary basis, and as such contributors are not paid for their work.
They do however reach a like-minded audience of more than 300 professional
and educational institutions, and over 700 individual AUUG members across
AUUG Inc. is the UNIX and Open Systems User Group. This pretty much
defines the areas of interest covered by AUUGN. We accept technical
papers, discussion papers, opinion pieces, reviews, reports of
relevant meetings or discussion groups, and letters to the editor.
AUUGN is read increasingly by people working in the UNIX/OpenSystems
industry who are not necessarily technically oriented. We wish to make
AUUGN accessible to these people as well, and to that end we'd like to
publish at least one semi- or non-technical piece in each issue. Anyone
who feels that they can write interesting and relevant articles for this
audience are encouraged to do so.
The editor of AUUGN is the final arbiter as to whether a contribution is
used in any given issue, if at all.
- Gratuitious plugs for products, although legitimate, balanced reviews
are always welcome.
- Rehashes of other people's work, unless it is a well-structured
review paper that properly acknowledges its sources.
- Anything over about 4,000 words, unless it's really
- Either get in touch with the AUUG Chapter contact in your state, or
send e-mail to the AUUGN Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let them know
what you're intending to write about; this prevents you wasting lots of
time and effort if someone else has already contributed something similar
in recent memory.
- Write your article. Keep it to the subject, and do your best to make
it interesting to read. This is admittedly sometimes difficult,
especially in the case of highly specialised technical papers, but do
what you can.
- E-mail your contribution to email@example.com. If you don't
have access to electronic mail, post your contribution to:

If posting electronic copy, put your contribution on a DOS- or
Mac-formatted 3.5" disk.
