Contributions to the TPP Newsletter
The TPP Newsletter publishes Book, Conference, and Workshop Reviews related to the Statement of Purpose of the Theoretical Primatology Project (TPP). In addition, the newsletter publishes comments on newsletter content as well as other literature related to the Statement of Purpose of the TPP. The Editor of the TPP Newsletter evaluates the appropriateness of submitted material for publication. Other material, such as occasional supplementary articles, are solicited by the Editor.
Book Reviews: Persons involved in the publishing of books, monographs, or special issues who would like these to be considered for review in the TPP Newsletter may contact the Editor and arrange for their publisher to forward a review copy (or PDF of chapters) to be forwarded. Alternatively, members who wish to review a particular text should contact the Editor.
Workshop/Conference Reviews: Workshop/Conference reiviews should be prepared in one of the following two formats. Brief synopses (max 1,000 words) may be submitted by either participants or conference organizers at the regular newsletter deadlines. These can include synopses of workshops that will be published in more detailed accounts and should include information as to where the information will be published. Longer reports (max 2,500 words) will be considered from large workshops/conferences for which other publications are not stemming. The purpose of the latter format is to provide a venue to disseminate information and discussions that would otherwise not be available to non-conference participants. Anyone attending such a workshop and wishing to publish in the newsletter should contact the Editor by the deadlines. Reports should aim at a critical assessment of the conference, as well as a synthesis of the convergent ideas presented. A synopsis of future directions of research that were reached at the end of the conference should also be included. Anyone attending the workshops may submit reports, but preference will be given to submissions not authored by conference organizers. A single application for a workshop will be considered, so it may be appropriate to agree upon a reporter at the conference. Graduate students and postdocs are strongly encouraged to consider contributing to writing these reports.
Commentaries: Responses to commentary articles published in the newsletter or articles eliciting discussion of topics relevant to the TPP Statement of Purpose will be considered for publication in the newsletter. Authors of such articles should contact the Editor by the deadlines in order to outline the content of the article. The Editor may request submission of the article earlier than the regular deadline should need for outside reviewing be deemed necessary.
Cartoons: Cartoonists are encouraged to submit artwork. All cartoons published in the newsletter will be credited to the illustrator and will appear on the website of the newsletter <www.robertwilliams.org/tpp>. Please email the editor for the specifications of acceptable graphics formats.
Deadlines for submission to the TPP Newsletter: 1 December for consideration for 15 January; 1 March for consideration for 15 April; 1 June for consideration for 15 July; and 1 September for consideration for 15 October.
