If you would like to submit an article for publication, please follow these guidelines:
- Topic should be of broad interest and/or impact to the general Lab community. Should not relate to only a small, specific group of employees.
- Provide a paragraph of 100 words or less that answers the 5 W’s: who, what, where, why, and when.
- Include a suggested headline and a photo or graphic to accompany the article.
- Do not embed images into the word document; send as a separate JPEG.
- Provide complete URLs (including http prefix) for all links in the article. Do not embed links…indicate words or phrases to be linked with underline or brackets and put URLs below article.
- Links to PDFs are discouraged, as readers don’t like or typically take the time to open them. Where possible, provide URL for website for additional information. If no website exists, then provide PDF (no word documents).
- Send articles that have already received approval from all stakeholders…do not send drafts.
- Indicate date you would like article to run. Submissions must be received at least 48 hours in advance of this date.
- Every article posted on the TABL website will be announced in the TABL e-mail at least once. If space allows, reminders can run in the TABL e-mail, but not guaranteed. Reminders will point to the original web posting (not re-posted as a new story) and be listed in the “Ongoing News” section
- Is your article about an event? Would you like a google calendar button included with the article, which allows readers to directly add to their calendars? If so, follow these directions to add the event to the Lab’s events calendar. Once posted, go to the listing on your calendar and click the “publish event” link at the bottom, copy the code and include it with your TABL article submission.
- Send articles to email@example.com.
- To make changes to articles that are already posted, contact the editor.
- After your article has been posted, check it out on the TABL website to see if any comments have been left. Where feasible, submit a comment to answer any questions, acknowledge suggestions, or provide additional information.
- The editor reserves the right to adjust submitted text for length, journalistic style, clarity, and appropriateness.
