Written contributions for inclusion in the society's annual journal Lookback at Andover are always welcomed by the publications committee. Outline ideas for a prospective article can be sent by way of the 'contact us' page on this website and will be given due consideration by the committee. Generally we would expect original, unpublished material with suitable reference to primary sources consulted. Approved articles can be written by either members or non-members but in either case the committee reserves the right to edit any article submitted with a view to improvement and/or to fit the magazine space available. In rare cases the committee may feel it necessary to reject material that fails to reach a publishable standard or does not suit the established remit.
