The year 2011 was also an incredible year for the Napoleon Series. It continues to grow at an incredible rate. We now have over 110,000 articles, reviews, images, maps, and other items. All are free to the public and the number of daily visitors is immense. We average over 75,000 files downloaded per day, while our monthly downloads average about 2 million! On any given day, we have over 1.1 gb of data downloaded! The forum continues to be the place for exchanging of ideas, with over 15,000 messages posted last year.

I would be amiss if I did not publicly thank all of the editors who were actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the Series in 2011. In alphabetical order are:

Tony Broughton, the Research Editor. He has always been there to answer even the most obscure question! Few are aware, that many of the images that we use to illustrate the articles come from his private collection!

John R. Grodzinski, Editor of the War of 1812 Magazine.

Tom Holmberg, the Reviews Editor. Every review published on the Series is edited by Tom first! .

David Markham, Editor and Liaison with the International Napoleonic Society. David provides us with much valuable support and coordination with our sponsor.

Alexander Mikaberidze, Editor. Alex is our resident expert on the Russian Army of our era and continues to bring to light material that had not been previously published in English.

Stephen Summerfield, Editor of the Smoothbore Ordnance Journal.

I would like to close with by thanking those who contributed much time and effort judging our writing contest:

Dr. John G. Gallaher, Colonel Jack Gill, J. David Markham, and Dr. Alexander Mikaberidze who were the judges in our annual writing contest!

Interested in Contributing a Paper to the Napoleon Series? We have developed a writing and style guide! This guide was developed based on eleven years of editing over 4,000 papers that have been submitted to the Series. Although most papers follow the guide in spirit, almost all have minor problems. This in itself may not appear to be a major issue, however we publish over 1,000 new items a year. We spend hundreds of hours every year formatting these papers to ensure that all contributions published by the Napoleon Series will have a uniform look. Much of the guide is common sense and if followed by the author, will reduce the amount of time needed to edit a paper. For example, html can not handle Tabs or columns. If the author uses either in his paper, all must be removed. So the guide tells the writer what to use instead of Tabs and columns.  

All papers must follow these guidelines, unless given prior approval by the editor.  Those papers that do not follow these  guidelines will be sent back to the author for revision.

This guide is not intended to limit the content of any contribution; rather it is designed to aid authors in properly formatting their articles and to reduce the amount of time spent editing the articles.

A copy of the guide can be found at: Napoleon Series Format and Style Guide

Enjoy!!
