Becoming a Contributor

In order to become a contributor to the Encyclopedia and so we can register your proposed articles in our system, please create a personal user account, but stop short of paying. You will receive an e-mail giving you an account number. Please send this to our Admin Team, and we will convert your account to contributor status and record your proposed contribution(s) in our online administration system.

We will inform you when your account has been converted and you will then have full access to the publication. You will also receive regular electronic reports on the publication's development.

[A pdf version of this page is available for downloading in your MyLE Account, together with the relevant submission forms and further guidance.] Recommended reading lists should be sent to Admin.
