CAMPUS NEWS EDITORIAL POLICIES REGARDING
SUBMISSION OF MATERIALS
The following editorial policies and guidelines must be observed by individuals and organizations or groups wishing to submit materials to Campus News. The policies are subject to revision or expansion as determined by the professional staff of the UNM Public Affairs Department. The following policies will be observed:
SUBMISSIONS: Requests for column/article/photo space must be submitted to the editor, except in instances when invitations to submit materials have been extended. Responses to submissions will be considered for publication on a space-available basis.
-DEADLINES: The materials must be received by the deadlines specified. If the materials have not been received by the specified deadlines, the department will proceed with the production of Campus News under the assumption that a decision was made against having a column/article/photo in the particular issue for which the deadline was not met.
BYLINES: The author or authors of each column will have his, her or their bylines published. Columns submitted without bylines will not be published. Columns written by a committee or group should include identification of the specific individuals in the committee or group members.
COLUMN CONTENT: The columns may address controversial issues of widespread interest. However, columns that are deemed by the Public Affairs Department to be attacks on individuals, or about specific personnel grievances that should best be addressed through other appropriate University channels, will not be published.
COLUMN STYLE: The editor reserves the right to edit for length and style, according to the Associated Press Stylebook.
GENERAL LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS: Material in the columns will not be published if, in the opinion of the editor, it is determined to be potentially libelous. Material must not violate any postage, copyright or libel laws, or rights to privacy as described by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (also known as the "Buckley Amendment"), and as applied through the Student Records Policy that is published in the UNM Pathfinder, as well as comparable policies for faculty and staff as described in the UNM Faculty Handbook, and the Personnel Information Disclosure Policy in the Employee Records Section of the UNM Business Policies Manual. Columns deemed to be in violation of the laws and policies cited above will not be published.
