A word of caution, never submit previously published/released information to us without naming the author, publisher and date of publication. If possible, try to get the necessary usage permission yourself. Please respect copyright and intelectual information rights.

Please provide submissions using the following as guidance. We will accept almost anything. It just takes longer to make it suitable for publication if your submission is not provided to us in one of the formats listed below:

Pictures: we will accept digitally scanned images, however, we prefer the originals. We can reproduce B&W or colour (glossy) prints and 35mm slides or negatives.

Text: Word format file, ASCII text files, e-mail message, typed page.

Drawings: we prefer copy ready line drawings, but can convert most popular drawing program files.

Include a paper/hard copy along with each electronic submission. All submissions are provided to the Canadian Pacific Historical Association without copyright restrictions unless clearly marked otherwise.

Style Guide

The editorial team has been developing a style guide for CP TRACKS. Although it was mainly intended for our internal use, it may also be helpful to authors wishing to submit text in a more "copy ready" format.
