Copy submission guidelines



For any editorial submissions we recommend supplying a synopsis of the proposed feature of no more than a paragraph in length. This should be sent to Elinore Mackay for consideration


We require any articles to be supplied at the end of the first week of the month for the following months issue so we have adequate time to prepare for print and layouts. Typically we don`t provide proofs of editorial pages but this can be discussed with the editor


Once commissioned your article should be supplied with high resolution imagery supplied as either; Jpeg, PDF or tif file @ 300 DPI is acceptable.  Any charts tables or diagrams should also be supplied in this format power point presentations are not acceptable.

We are unable to use web based images for print as these don`t reproduce well. We always look favourably on articles with good imagery as these are most likely to be used in the magazine.

Press release submissions and advertorials

Please supply any press release material for inclusion in our product watch section or news items as a word document preferably in a Word 97-2003 format. These should be sent as attachments on emails alongside supporting Jpeg images/logos @ 300DPI high resolution format.  Images embedded in word documents can be used for illustration purposes but the actual file should be attached also.   Images embedded in word documents are acceptable for online reproduction on our website but not for print purposes. Downloadable FTP links to high resolution imagery is welcomed however.

If you have trouble sending a large file sized image 10MB + we do have a mail large files email facility we can supply you with details for on request.
