We are very pleased to consider your article for the ISUG Technical Journal. Sharing your expertise makes us all more aware of the important issues facing our organizations, and helps us to become more effective users of Sybase technologies. To assist our authors and ease the production process, the User Group has established a few basic guidelines.
Please note that adherence to these guidelines is a requirement to qualify for payment.
Although all of our authors gain recognition for both themselves and their company through being published in the ISUG Technical Journal, as well as a great portfolio piece and resume item, ISUG also pays each author a nominal fee of $250 for their published feature article. Regular columnists receive a stipend of $100 for each column.
Authors will also receive four complimentary copies of the printed issue of the Journal in which their article is published. These copies are available through ISUG.
* These new payment fees begin with Issue 1, 2010. To be considered for the payment fees authors must adhere to the Guidelines listed above for a featured article.
In the event that a single article is split across multiple issues due to length, ISUG will generally only pay for the first portion unless a waiver agreement is in place prior to submission.
Multiple authors of a single featured article will spit the payment regardless of the number of authors. Also, only 1 article per author(s), per issue, will be considered for payment.
For instance, if John Doe submits three five-page articles, and Jane Smith submits 1 5-page article for the same issue, and all four articles are published, both Jane and John will receive $250.00 (USD) each; John will not receive any more for the additional articles.
Please note that authors will not receive payment for their article if they have received payment for their work from another source. A detailed explanation of this restriction is available from ISUG upon request.
