Editorial Submission Guidelines

1. What We Need

Our editorial team is continually looking for articles that are of value to our readers. Articles and features on GovNews are focused on educating our audiences, therefore readers should learn something from your article and then apply that knowledge to their profession.

Content in GovNews includes news articles, special reports, feature articles, how-to guides and short interviews with key government personnel in our 5 Minutes With section.

Educating our audience is of crucial importance. If you are a company wanting to submit, the article must be objective as we allow only one mention of your company’s products or services. We ask that you keep commercialism to a minimum.

It is important that you plan ahead in the editorial process. The process usually takes two months. For example, our deadlines for the Special Reports in our Membership Section are two weeks prior to the publishing date. If you are submitting a regular news story, we will have deadlines on a case by case basis.


2. How to Submit an Article

GovNews accepts article submissions at any time. However, if you have an abstract for a Special Report, please send it to the editorial team two weeks prior to when it goes live on the third Wednesday of every month.

Please make the abstract short and succinct at one paragraph outlining the focus and main points of your article. It will also be helpful to list the benefits to the reader.

Regular news articles should be between 350 to 450 words. Feature Articles in our Special Reports section should be between 500 and 2,000 words. We strongly encourage you to send illustrations and photos to accompany your article.

Please contact editorial to discuss article ideas and pitches, as well as deadlines.


3. Digital Image Requirements

Images are important to illustrate the main theme of an article, so please send as many files as you can. Please also send captions with these images.

As we are an online site, these images need only be 72 dpi resolution, in JPG format.

We will not accept images from the web that are under copyright. They must be either images that you have taken yourself, images under ownership of your organisation, or in the public domain. All images submitted will be duly credited in the caption.

We will not accept images from PDFs or PowerPoint slides or images embedded in Word or text files, Windows Metafiles (WMF), GIF files or BMP files.

If you are unsure about the format of your images, we suggest contacting your media liaison department or a graphic arts agency to produce the images for you. As a result, a better quality image for your article will help you stand out and grab readers’ attention.
