How to Publish
From the beginning, plan to publish. Obtain estimates of the costs related to the project before you start.
Carefully prepare the copy. Select three different readers to proofread the manuscript. Each reader will bring his/her experience and expertise to the reading. All three editors of Restoration Serials Index read the printouts of the current year.
Photographs increase the cost of the publication but their value is unlimited. Glossy back and white photographs with sharp contrast work the best. Have each print digitized for optimal reproduction quality. Pictures from newspapers, maps, and books do not reproduce with the clarity that photographs and digital pictures do. [example]
