Our preferred way to receive material for publication is by email to our Editor, but if this is not possible then post to John Perry, 7 Cross Park Road, Wembury, Devon UK PL9 0EU (at the time of updating this page we are waiting to elect a new Editor so in the meantime John will collect any material submitted)
Your material can be sent electronically as a plain text file plus pictures sent separately as .jpg, .tif etc. Alternatively send a Word file or .pdf file rather than a plain text file, but in that case please do also send the pictures as separate image files. You don’t need to spend time on formating since our Editor will format articles to suit the style and layout of our magazine.
Pictures should if at all possible at a resolution of at least 300 ppi at the final size and you can assume most pictures in Catalyst are not larger than 100 by 150mm (6 by 4 inches).
Any line drawings should not be sent as .jpg files since this blurs the lines, .tif is OK.
For mathematical expressions send good definition scan of text (.tif) or use MS Equation or its derivatives or post hard copy.
As a last resort we can accept hand writtain articles by post but we much prefer digital files or at least typed material that can be scanned with optical character recognition software.
