Memorials are tributes written by associates, friends, or relatives, to deceased members of GSA. Authors who submit memorials will receive 50 paper preprints for their own distribution within four months of submitting their copy. 50 copies will also be provided to the family of the deceased.
Members may also write their own memorials. The memorial should be attached to the member's Will with instructions to forward it to GSA at the appropriate time. Self-written memorials must follow GSA guidelines, and will be professionally edited by GSA editorial staff as appropriate. If the forwarding party would like copies of the memorial as specified above, they must notify GSA at that time.
- The copy should be limited to 2000 words (not including bibliography).
- Please double check spelling of names and dates listed within the text.
- Provide the text as an electronic file in Word format.
- If providing typed manuscripts, please double or triple space lines of text.
