Preparing and Producing the NFE Exchange. Manual Series #3.
McLachlan, Milla; And Others
Based on the experiences of the Nonformal Education Information Center (NFEIC) in publishing "The NFE Exchange," this manual documents the process through which "The NFE Exchange" is planned, organized, and produced, in order to provide assistance to other organizations interested in producing a periodical or similar publication of their own. (A newsletter published three times a year by the NFEIC at Michigan State University as part of its role in facilitating an exchange of knowledge and information on nonformal education and development, "The NFE Exchange" synthesizes and disseminates current information on trends, developments, and issues in nonformal education, and a broad range of development topics and concerns.) The first three sections detail the organizational processes and procedures that have been developed, tested, and refined in the course of producing some 25 issues of the newsletter, covering planning, researching and writing procedures, and preparations for printing the periodical. The final section addresses practical questions and important considerations regarding the planning and publishing of a periodical, and lists some newsletters of possible interest. Appendices contain examples of worksheets and guidelines used by NFEIC staff in the production process and one complete issue of "The NFE Exchange." (LMM)
