All articles must be reviewed and accepted for publication by the off our backs collective. Sometimes we return an article for revisions. Sometimes, sadly, we reject an article. To make sure your article is accepted for publication, follow these guidelines.
Categories of Articles
One page in oob is about 500 words. A news article must be one page or less. Commentary or feature type articles such as a comprehensive analysis of a topic or coverage of a conference, may be up to 4 or 5 oob pages.
You can send your article as an attachment by email (not in the body of the email message itself) or on a 31/2-inch floppy disk accompanied by a printout. Preferred formats are Microsoft Word,WordPerfect, RTF, or Plain Text. Our goal here is not to have to re-type your article word for word. However, if you do not have access to computers, we will accept typewritten, and, if need be, neatly handwritten articles. Please do not fax your article.
Email your article to firstname.lastname@example.org
Mail your printout and diskette to off our backs, 2337B 18th St. NW, Washington, DC 20009, USA
