Feature articles: Send the complete manuscript with accompanying photographs, diagrams, or other supporting materials.

Submissions should include text of the article along with representative photographs.

General information:
· Issues are planned six to twelve months in advance.

· When your article is accepted, we will send a contract setting out specific requirements, asking for adjustments or additions if any are needed, and setting forth the payment (or ad exchange offer) for the article.
