myUNB News guidelines
- myUNB News is a forum for university-related notices/events only. This only includes news and notices directly related to university activities. Note: Events must also be posted to the UNB Events Calendar in order for the event to be placed in the calendar.
- Deadline for submission will be at 12 noon for publication the following day.
- There is a limit of 10 articles than can be included in the myUNB News email. Notices will be included on a first-come, first-serve basis.
- The full text of messages intended for transmission must be provided in the online submission form.
- Announcements should be no longer than 250 words in length. If elaboration is needed, website addresses should be given.
- Student Affairs and Services and Communications & Marketing reserves the right to prioritize messages based on time sensitivity and breadth of interest.
- The content of the myUNB News is also subject to the University's general regulations on conduct. Submissions that do not meet these criteria will not be included.
- The notice that has been submitted will appear once per week at a maximum depending on the amount of notices that have been submitted. In order for a notice to appear more than once, it must be submitted each time (maximum once per week).
- When submitting a notice, please do not use abbreviations or acronyms on first reference.
- The name and contact email of the submitter will be included in the notice (please use departmental email whenever possible). Note: This is an automated tool. Submissions will not be edited for format, building names, etc., so please ensure information is correct before pressing the Submit button.
- Spell out names of buildings or rooms. Ex. Marshall d’Avray Hall, Room 242.
- Use Canadian Press Style when submitting articles with dates. Ex. Oct. 31, 2013 instead of October 31st, 2013.
- Ensure that the campus is clearly specified in the title and within the body of the message.
- Notices of research projects conducted as part of an undergraduate course project will not be allowed. The University's Ethics Committee must screen graduate projects and the posting must include the UNB Research Ethics Board approval number (REB #).
- Transmission of any particular message is at the discretion of the Executive Director, Student Affairs and Services and the Director, Communications & Marketing.
- Messages intended for students are only to be submitted to myUNB News Student (Fredericton or Saint John) and messages intended for faculty and staff to be submitted to myUNB News.
- Do not copy and paste from Word. Copying and pasting text from a word document may result in your article in not being posted. We recommend copying your word document to 'notepad' or 'textedit' then copy that content over to this editor. That way, the word embedded styling wil be removed making your post web friendly.
By choosing to submit an article, I agree to the above guidelines.
