We recommend that you use a guide of 850 words to a page and try to keep an article to a maximum of 4 pages. The word count needs to be reduced accordingly when including any code/tables/images etc.
If you feel a topic can't be covered in 4 pages then we ask that you consider whether it might be appropriate to split the article into two parts to be printed over consecutive issues.
