The GRASS Newsletter has been merged into the new OSGeo Journal -
please see below for previous issues of GRASS-News and the OSGeo Journal homepage for new
issues of the new OSGeo Journal.
The GRASS Newsletter aims at covering the gap between scientific
publications and manuals on one hand and the mailing list on the other
hand. Articles shall not be as scientific/professional as in
scientific journals and reach beyond the usual question-answer
structure of a mailing list. The review process is a benign one, just
to ensure the quality of contributions. Moreover by the way of the
newsletter new modules can be explained & presented briefly and hence
If you are considering writing an article please add the commands
used, so that the reader can reproduce it. Further more, your article
should be written in Latex.
For instructions which format/style shall be used, please have a look at this
working GRASS Newsletter Latex template.
If you do not know Latex yet, don't be scared as it is quite easy.
You might want to have a look at the
Latex Cheat Sheet
to get to know a few commands, e.g. how to enumerate, make tables etc.
For historical interest:
Please download GRASS Newsletter Latex template
prior your submission and check your article for Latex errors; moreover your article should not
exceed 10 pages. All images (such as screenshots) must be in the PNG format, all drawings
and vector diagrams in FIG or PDF format.
Please add all of your files to a compressed archive (zip, tar, etc.) for uploading.
For submission please send a mail to the Editor in Chief (address see below).
We would like to acknowledge the R News editorial board of the
R-project, for without their
contribution of the R news *.tex and *.sty file the GRASS newsletter
would have taken much more time to reach the current level.
