Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word, RTF, PDF, or ODT file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

Copyright Notice

Copyright of each article is retained by the author(s). However, as each issue of The Python Papers is released under a Creative Commons 2.5 license, subject to Attribution, Non-commercial and Share-Alike clauses; hence, by the act of submission, the author(s) is/are deemed to agree to release the works under a Creative Commons 2.5 license, subject to Attribution, Non-commercial and Share-Alike clauses, despite retaining the copyright. This, in short, provides a carte blanche on republishing articles, so long as the source of the article is fully attributed, the article is not used for commercial purposes and that the article is republished under this same license.
