EDITORIAL

Fibre Systems is a business-to-business title, not an academic or research journal, meaning we publish feature articles and not research papers etc. Our general policy for feature articles is that they are all written in-house or by one of our regular freelance contributors, and we do not accept by-lined features from suppliers, PR companies and so on. Those seeking editorial coverage in a feature should consult the editorial features list (in our 2018 Editorial Calendar) and contact the editor accordingly.

The editor regularly sends out an email a few weeks’ prior to editorial deadlines with more details of the features in an upcoming issue and how to get involved. If you would like to be included on the distribution of this email, please contact us at fibresystems@europascience.com .

Relevant news and product press releases are welcomed and should be sent by email only to fibresystems@europascience.com, and to no other address. Any material submitted is included solely at the editor’s discretion, and may be edited for length and style. Our own editorial house style may differ from your own. Spellings are British and not American English. We also adopt English typography. Thus it is our style to place product or company names in lower case with an initial capital. Any material is included at the discretion of the editor. We do not offer editorial material for client approval prior to publication.

Any images supplied are assumed to have no copyright restrictions and may be published without credit unless explicitly specified.
