I often have people email me about what they should do when they're starting to dip their toes into the huge publishing pool. Well, over the years I have come across some hints and tips, which seem to be pretty standard for the industry, and also some procedures, which I myself have been advised by others to follow. To that end, I decided to combine a few of those basic tips and hints into a small article for others to read, which you can find HERE (http://www.sffworld.com/authors/c/cladingboel_neil_charles/articles/tipsfornew.html), if you're interested.

Nice article, erebus.
A small collection of links to 'more info' (for example on www.SFWA.org (http://www.SFWA.org)) and to a couple of publishers and magazines, could really have topped off the article though.
For example, have anybody read the story about Myrtle the Manuscript (http://www.sfwa.org/writing/myrtle2.htm)? I thinks it's one of the most fun articles I have read in a long time.
