We are seeking content including:

  • Letters to the editor
  • Concise articles on interesting projects
  • Technical Notes
  • We accept everything from a paragraph to a full paper

We are also keen to encourage feedback on previous editions, so if an article has piqued your interest, please tell us what you thought of it – clarifications, corrections and complements are all valuable.

We welcome submissions from all, and are particularly keen to encourage younger members and those who’ve not written to us before.  If you aren’t sure, please contact us (editor@nzgs.org) and we can give you advice and encouragement.

Material should be forwarded to Marlène Villeneuve,  Don Macfarlane and Gabriele Chiaro at editor@nzgs.org with an absolute deadline of Friday 27th April 2018. We would really appreciate advance warning if you’re working on something so we can prepare!
