Submission Guidelines

Point of View: Material must be written in the third person.

TimelinessInterface is published quarterly—spring, summer, fall, and winter. Includes information in your update about events, initiatives, accomplishments, etc., from the last three to six months and events planned for the months following publication.

Details: Be specific. When describing activities, answer these questions: where, when, and who. Give the full names of speakers and other participants mentioned in the article. Double check the spelling of the names of persons and places. Consider whether someone prefers to be referred to in a publication as Ms., Dr., or Prof., rather than by their first name.

Length: Submissions should contain enough content to be concise and relevant. The length of your submissions may vary depending on the number of activities you scheduled. However, the preferred minimum length is two to three paragraphs.

Formatting: Submit all material in English via a Microsoft Word document. Left justify the text. Otherwise, don’t format your documents, except for paragraphs and italics, etc., if needed, as the text will be reformatted prior to publication. 

Photographs: Pictures showcase your members and events, drawing attention to your activities. Ensure that your photo(s) meet these requirements:

  • Each picture MUST be sent as a separate attachment to an email.
  • Photos must have a resolution of at least 300dpi; this means that the picture file will likely be larger than 1 MB.
  • Include captions in your Microsoft Word document for each picture. Each caption should include a brief one-sentence description, and list the names of all the individuals, or the group’s name.
  • Your photo caption should include a list of the names (usually, from left to right) of recognizable individuals if the group is less than six to eight people. For larger groups, the photo resolution is probably not high enough to recognize each person, so it is better to provide just the group’s name.
  • Photos that have individuals under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a release form signed by a legal guardian. Contact Shannon Reed for this form.
  • Written permission from the photographer allowing ECS to use the photograph is required. An email from the photographer is sufficient. ECS will publish the name of the photographer if asked to do so.
