The NOTICE TO CONTRIBUTORS section on the inside back cover of the July issue of the JOURNAL contained the following statement:

Page charges. For papers describing original research the subvention charge is $100.00 per page.”

This is in keeping with a policy adopted by the Councilors at the midyear meeting in Washington. It specifies a requirement for each author and his supporters to provide assistance to the Society for the operation of the JOURNAL and makes the amount of such financial support proportional to the length of the material published. The term subvention is properly used since this charge does not cover the cost of JOURNAL publication. The practice will eliminate, to a considerable degree, current page limitations on the size of each volume.

Effective as of 20 September 1988, the estimated subvention amount will be noted in the letter of acknowledgment provided to the author at the time each manuscript is received.
