22nd February 2011 10:18 PM Elaine Frei Analog Science Fiction and Fact has announced that it began accepting electronic submissions at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, 22 February 2011, via a submissions system at its website. With the new electronic submissions system in place, electronic submissions become the preferred way for Analog to receive stories for consideration, but it will still accept print submissions. It does not accept e-mail or fax submissions. According to the magazine’s submission guidelines, also found on its website, Analog will consider submissions from any writer and is interested in finding and developing new talent. The guidelines say that the magazine is looking for realistic stories in which future science and/or technology is an integral part. The science can be from any of the sciences, and the technology can come from any branch of engineering. The characters in the story must, according to the guidelines, be believable. Analog also accepts science fact articles, but the guidelines ask that submissions in this category by as free from technical jargon and mathematical detail as possible. In the announcement of the new electronic submissions system, Analog’s editor, Stanley, Schmidt, asked that writers who currently have a print submission being considered by the magazine not resubmit it through the electronic system. Complete submissions guidelines can be found on Analog’s website.
