"Respect Yourself, Respect Your Stories" - some good advice by Scott Nicholson as hosted on the HWA website

Legend:
 
Publication = Name of target market.
Guidelines = Duh! You had better be reading these before submission.
 
Payment = Money you receive for your efforts. In this table it is represented as:
  • reimbursement amount/word = You will get paid this much for each word.
  • $X or $X = Depending on the length of story you can receive one of two amounts.
  • x-xc/word = a sliding scale reimbursement per word, depending on length of work or on the budget of publication.
  • $X-$X/1000 words = a sliding scale reimbursement for every 1000 words, depending on length of work or on the budget of publication.
  • Amounts are in UK Pounds; Euros; or Dollars. Check the guidelines for clarification. Use a Currency Converter to check actual amount in your currency.
  • Neg. up to £XX/xxxx word(s) = The writer is required to enter into negotiations with the publication for renumeration.
  • $XX = a one off flat payment for your work. Ensure you check what rights the publisher is asking for.
  • <xc/word = The publication is offering less than a whole cent per word as renumeration.
  • x.xxc/word = The publication is offering less than a whole cent per word as renumeration beyond the whole number presented, i.e. 1.25c/word = one and a quarter cents per word. 2.5c/word = two and a half cents per word, etc. 

Reply = The outer limit of days you should wait for a reply before submitting a query as to the progress of your submission.

Length = The outer (or preferred) length of the publication. Some markets also have a minimum length. Check the guidelines carefully.

Genre = What types of fiction a market accepts. The more varied=the less spots for dark fiction/horror=the harder to get a sale. Sci-Fi (SF); Fantasy (F); Mystery (M); Horror (H); Anything and everything (SpecFic).

Email Sub = Do they accept email submissions.

Multi Subs = Do they accept multiple submissions, more than one story sent to them at one time.

Sim Subs = Do they accept submissions which have been submitted elsewhere at the same time.

HWA-SFWA = Is this market recognised as a professional market by the major professional associations in regards to gaining membership.

U/A = this information was UnAvailable able to be found within the markets guidelines or other web pages. If you really want to know (and you should), you will be required to email the editor(s).
 
Editors: if one of your sites has a U/A listed against it, feel free to leave a comment on my blog with the required changes and I'll see to it that it's done.
