Guidelines for Posting an Article

Posted by Chris Merkord , 09 May 2012 · 21,538 views

Guidelines for Posting an Article As interest in the Ornithology Exchange has grown, we are fielding more questions from members about how to post articles on the site. This is exactly what we had envisioned when we created the article system, and we hope the trend continues. Given the increased interest, we think it is time to lay out some general guidelines for writing articles for the Ornithology Exchange.

Who can post an article?

Full members of the site can write and post articles. "General Members," who are not members of a participating ornithological society, "Guests," Full Members who are not signed in to the site, and "Validating," who have not yet completed the registration process can not post articles.

What constitutes an article?

We generally have four criteria for determining whether an article is suitable for publication on OE: content, breadth of interest in the topic, quality, and length.
  • Content. In general, the content of an article should provide new information, discussion or commentary on a subject of interest. Announcements or short news items should be posted in the appropriate forum instead.
  • Breadth. Articles should be of interest to many members of the site, not just a few individuals.
  • Quality. Information or discussion should be well-organized, concise, and carefully thought-out. Attention should be paid to grammar, style, and layout.
  • Length. Articles are generally for longer pieces. Shorter pieces can be posted as a topic in the appropriate forum.
In addition, any article posted needs an image and a teaser paragraph.

Short, significant items about important topics such as the SFO will be posted on the home page as breaking news until they can be replaced by a full article with more detail.

Will my article show up on the home page?

As of the publication date of this blog entry, the "Recent Articles" block on the home page will automatically display the most recently posted articles in chronological order by publication time, starting with the most recent. The administrators may occasionally change the order or duration of the posting of articles on the home page to accomodate articles about topics of great significance, such as the proposed SFO.

Blog terms and rules

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this Article system to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you.

Do you need help?

If you would like to post an article but are not sure if it is appropriate, or you need technical help posting it, contact one of us.

Maybe not, but we need help...

If you are interested in serving as an a content editor, copy editor, or moderator, or you have suggestions about improving the , please let us know.

Your friendly neightborhood OE admins,
Chris Merkord
