Johnstone Feature Topics
Do you have a scholarly article about the history of Johnstone or the surrounding area? We will be pleased to consider it for publication on this site. Accepted articles may be accompanied by illustrations (photographs, etc.). Photo essays may also be submitted; they will appear in the Gallery. (Procedures)
The reader-submitted article procedure is under development starting in February 2018 and is subject to change.
Published articles will be reformatted to our standards, so bold or italicized text will not necessarily be preserved, and illustrations may be placed differently than in the original. We will normally also produce a downloadable PDF version of the published version. All submissions are presumed to have content that is either original or within in the public domain, and by submitting an article the author so attests. Authors should carefully and accurately provide bibliographic attribution to sources other than personal or common knowledge. Articles will assert a joint copyright of the author and the Society subject to international fair use standards. Your article will be reviewed by a committee before publication.
Your article should be submitted as plain text using the form linked at the end of this paragraph. We are working on ways to allow upload of other forms of text. The form will ask for descriptions of additional resources such as illustrations. Allow six to eight weeks for review. Submit articles here.
As the number of articles increases, we will begin to subdivide the list by topic. We encourage authors to suggest topical groupings.
Topics already in the queue: WWI, WWII, Great Houses, Families & Genealogy, and Biography.
