About This Journal


Word Ways is interested in receiving original articles (non-fiction, fiction or poetry) relating to recreational logology. All articles should be sent to the editor, Jeremiah Farrell, 9144 Aintree Dr., Indianapolis, Indiana 46250 ().

Although handwritten articles are permissible, authors are encouraged to send typewritten ones. Most desirable are computer-ready articles in Microsoft Word having the following specifications:

Title: 14 pt Times New Roman BOLD
Text: 12 pt Times New Roman
Page Size: 7 inches horizontal, 9 inches vertical

Diagrams and the like should be drafted in black or India ink in a form suitable for photo-offset.

In non-fiction articles, the responsibility for the accuracy of any statement rests primarily with the author. The general scope of any investigation should be defined: for example, a statement that words have been taken from the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary or the Merriam-Webster Unabridged Dictionary, Third Edition., or place names taken from the Times Index-Gazetteer of the World. If a word or name comes from an unusual source, this should be identified. Footnotes in general should be avoided; references can be given either in the text or at the end of the article.

Word Ways makes every effort to ensure the information published in this journal is original and accurate, but cannot accept any legal responsibility for any errors, omissions, lifted content, or otherwise.
