About the NewsletterCorrigo is the newsletter for the STC Technical Editing SIG.
In the past, Corrigo has been a hardcopy publication and a PDF publication. Today, Corrigo is distributed in an e-mail as a Newsletter Summary that points people to the articles that have been posted on our website, and then we capture that set of articles into a traditional issue of Corrigo.
Starting with Volume 9, Number 1, all articles are available online. Older issues of Corrigo are available in the Newsletter Archives in PDF or you can browse the HTML versions of articles, by category.
Submission guidelinesWe publish articles of all types and all lengths, as long as they are related to technical editing in some way. Please contact Deanne Gittens, Managing Editor of Corrigo, to discuss any ideas you might have for an article. Email articles to the managing editor in a format that is compatible with Word 2010 or previous.
Articles should be submitted by the end of the month, in the month prior to the publishing schedule (see below).
By submitting an article, you implicitly grant a license to this newsletter to run the article and also for other STC publications to reprint it without specific permission.
Copyright is held by the writer. In your cover letter, identify if this article has been printed elsewhere of if it has been submitted for consideration to other publications. Please see the Copyright page for more information.
Publishing processAfter an article is submitted to the Managing Editor, we send it to a copy editor. We then return all comments back to the author, for them to resolve and resubmit a revised article. When we receive the revised article, we go ahead and publish it to our Web site, regardless of the newsletter issue publishing schedule.
Creating an Issue of the Corrigo NewsletterWe will create an issue — if and only if we have a sufficient number of articles - by the end of the following months:
