Call for AMATYC News Articles
Share |

AMATYC News always welcomes articles of interest to AMATYC members. If it is about an accomplishment of you or your colleague, affiliate news, or a grant activity, please send it to your regional Vice President. However, if you have a short teaching topic or idea to share, an activity that you believe other members would find interesting, the results of a grant, or hints to help other members spend their professional time more productively, please consider writing it and sending it to Jennifer Travis, AMATYC News Editor, or Sarah Pauley, AMATYC News liaison, or by submitting the online form. If you don’t know if something would be appropriate, ask us. AMATYC News articles are light, short, and informative. To help you in your writing, here are a few hints:

Length: Most of our articles run in length between 300 and 500 words. Items in the AMATYC News tend to be one column or less of a three-column wide page.

Electronically: AMATYC News is produced electronically. We ask that articles come to the editor as Word documents or by using the online form. Articles are edited and proofed with an eye toward the finished product. We typically do not involve the author in this process, but make changes when we believe that the text will be improved with the change. The goal is to make you and AMATYC look good.


Formatting: If you submit a Word document, we take your document and insert it into a page layout program. Heavily formatted documents cause major difficulties at this point. In addition, remember that we are looking at narrow columns and bulleted or numbered lists do not translate well. For more information, please see the AMATYC News Submission Guidelines.


Patience: We’ll use appropriate articles when space allows. AMATYC News is printed in multiples of four pages. So if we only have enough material for eleven and a half pages, we need an article that is about one-half of a page long. At that point, we might use two-quarter page articles or one half-page article. If your article isn’t printed in the next issue, keep watching. However, if you think we’ve forgotten it, please email; just like you we teach at a two-year college.
