Journal - How to submit

Photographic requirements

Photographs should preferably be full-sized tiffs from RAW after post-processing or if working with jpgs in camera, full-size jpg after post-processing. The file should be RGB as it comes. The journal is produced using InDesign so the photographs are imported then final work exported as a high-resolution pdf file for printing and then online using Issuu. Please note that smaller files might not be able to be considered for full page spreads or the front cover image.

The editor reserves the right to select which photographs to include and will try to use them to support the flow of the story. Others may be on a page on their own or shown as a sequence on a double page. If you have a specific requirement for order please let the editor know using a diagram or details as to where you want photographs to be in your text.

Text

The text file can be in any format e.g. Word .doc, .docx, .rtf .txt. Please do not send as a pdf or .pub (Microsoft publisher). The text along with your photographs will be reformatted using the RPS journal template for consistency.

Text files should contain:

  • Short title for your work

  • Your name with RPS qualifications if any

  • A short sentence describing your work. You can use a suitable phrase or quote from your text that captures the essence of your article and that could be used online to encourage readers to look at your work.

  • Captions together with file numbers for all of your photographs, this is especially helpful for readers where there is spread of photographs on a page without text.

Submitting

For submission of what may be large file sizes please contact the editor via e-mail heritage.editor@rps.org who will be able to share a dropbox folder with you for your article.

Proofs

Each contributor will be sent a proof of their work for checking in advance of publication. This can then be commented on and returned to the editor.
