Submissions to Drosophila Information Service are welcome at any time. The annual issue now contains articles submitted during the calendar year of issue. Typically, we would like to have submissions by 15 December to insure their inclusion in the regular annual issue. Submissions in Microsoft Word, which is now the program we use for our page setup, are especially helpful. Submissions by email are also possible, but if they are sent as attached files, we have greatest success using MS Word or Rich Text Format. Pictures and line drawings should be as sharp and high contrast as possible. Where tables are concerned, it is useful to have a paper copy to facilitate accurate formatting. Details are given in the Guide to Authors.
