Submission Guidelines

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

TimelinessInterface is published quarterly—spring, summer, fall, and winter. Include 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: what, 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 is reformatted prior to publication. 

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

  • Figures and photographs must be submitted as separate files attached to emails.
  • Photos must be provided as individual high-resolution JPG or TIF files with at least 300 dpi (dots or pixels per inch) with an image size of 4×6; this means that the picture file should be larger than 1 MB.
  • Photo Captions
    • In addition to sending photos as an email attachment, photos must be included in your MS Word document with a brief one-sentence description for each caption.
    • List the names of all recognizable individuals in the photo (from left to right) if the group is less than six to eight people. For larger groups, include just the group’s name.
  • Photo Permissions
    • Photos that have individuals under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a release form signed by a legal guardian. Contact education@electrochem.org 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 photographer’s name/credit if requested.
