UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE
The Naval Institute, a private professional association, was established in 1873 to pi o% ide naval officers with an unofficial forum for the exchange of ideas about the development and improvement of the Navy. To this mission the Naval Institute remains dedicated, but it has broadened its program of service to provide professionally oriented publications for members of the U. S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and others concerned with sea power.
Naval Institute publications include the PROCEEDINGS, a monthly professional journal; the NAVAL REVIEW, an annual survey of world sea power; professional and historical books; and
color prints of old and new naval vessels.
Through its Distinguished Visitor Program, the Naval Institute each year brings individuals who have made significant contributions in the fields of sea power and international relations to Annapolis and other centers of Institute membership for speaking and seminar activities.
The Naval Institute also carried on a oral history program, in which verbatim accounts of important naval operations and events are recorded in taped interviews with the key individuals involved.
The Naval Institute now has a membership of some 60,000, about 18,000 of whom are regular members, and the remainder associate members. Regular Members are regular officers of the U. S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard; Associate Members include enlisted and reserve personnel of the naval services, members of other services, foreign naval officers, and civilians interested in the objectives of the Institute.
All members receive the PROCEF.DINGS monthly, are granted discounts on other Naval Institute publications, and may use the Institute's Book Order Service to obtain books of other publisher*, most at a discount. Members are also invited to attend the annual meeting held in Annapolis, Maryland, on the third Thursday in February each year. Only regular members, however, may vote for nominees to the Board of Control, for constitutional changes, or on financial matters.
WRITING FOR NAVAL INSTITUTE PUBLICATIONS
Since the Naval Institute depends heavily on the writing of its members—and, in fact, exists primarily to publish that writing—all members are encouraged to submit manuscripts to the editors of the. Institute.
After passing an initial screening process by the editors and publisher, manuscripts submitted for publication as articles in the Paocc•niNcs are read and voted upon by all Directors of the Naval Institute, who also set the rate of payment for accepted articles. Payment is upon acceptance, and the current minimum rate is six cents per word, or about $300-4400 for an average-length article. Comment and Discussion items and Professional Notes bring the same rate of payment on publication.
When considering writing for the PROCEEDINGS, the following points should be kept in mind: Your writing may be controversial, provided it does not exceed reasonable bounds. It was to publish profearkmal, constructive criticism that the journal was begun.
Neither poetry nor fiction is published.
You may submit your ideas for an article in one of three forms: a finished manuscript, which is preferable: an outline for an article; or simply a query as to the editor's interest in an article on the subject you have chosen.
The PROCKIWINUll carefully avoids the publication of classified material.
The Naval Institute is also interested in reviewing manuscripts and proposals for books on naval and maritime subjects.
Manuscripts and inquii ics concerning writing for the Naval Institute should be sent to: The Editor, U. S. Naval Institute Proceedings, Annapolis, Maryland 21402 or the Managing Editor, Book Department, U. S. Naval Institute, Annapolis, Maryland 21402. Telephone: Area Code 301-268-7711, Extension 2211.
