Every effort will be made to return to the author article submissions that do not comply with Author Guidelines, for possible resubmission at a later date. Submission is not a guarantee of publication. All content is subject to editorial review, acceptance, copy editing, and space allotment.

Article submissions must include: 

  • article text formatted as outlined below
  • proposed title of article and author name as desired in the publication byline
  • author telephone and facsimile numbers and e-mail address
  • software and file name identification on disk

Articles: All text must be written in third person.
Letters to the Editor and Editorials: First person may be used, but third person remains the recommended guideline.
Abbreviations should be avoided. (Common abbreviations may be acceptable in a long article but must be spelled out and followed immediately by the abbreviation in parentheses the first time it is used.)
Lists, Bullet Points, and Subheads should be avoided. Long lists of names, materials, phone numbers, etc. do not meet the criteria of a news article and therefore will be edited.
