MAPS is the magazine of the NTG (Nederlandstalige TeX Gebruikersgroep: Dutch Language TeX Users Group). The magazine appears twice a year and is sent to all members of NTG.

The MAPS consists of articles about TeX, Metafont and related matters. A large portion (more than half is normal) of the MAPS is filled with ConTeXt related content. The articles are mostly by Dutch authors, but typically written in English. Regular (English) articles from other TeX user groups or TeX conferences are also accepted.

To write an article for MAPS, the following sample can be used
