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 (within our 2021 media information) 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 Keely Portway.

We are happy to consider potential standalone Analysis/Opinion (A&O) pieces on relevant topics to the industry. This is where we invite experts to contribute their opinions (which can be controversial if required) backed up by some analysis. Contributors can express themselves in their own words and address issues that are topical in the industry and of general interest where the writer has some original views. Our proviso is that this is not a slot for marketing or overt company/product promotion. The higher the quality of, and the more impartial, the contribution, the better the chance of inclusion. If you would like a contribution to be considered, please contact Keely Portway.

Relevant news and product press releases are welcomed and should be sent by email only to editor.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.
