Opinion articles on campus, national and international issues should be 600 to 1,200 words in length. Op-Ed cartoons are also welcomed for the Campus Canvas feature. All material should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in .doc or .docx format by no later than 12 p.m. on the day prior to the desired day of publication; authors must submit their telephone numbers and day-of availability for editing questions. Submissions may not be published elsewhere prior to their appearance in the Daily, including but not limited to other on- and off-campus newspapers, magazines, blogs and online news websites; as well as Facebook. Republishing of the same piece in a different source is permissible as long as the Daily is credited with originally running the article. All material is subject to editorial discretion, and is not guaranteed to appear in the Daily. We encourage you to discuss your op-ed ideas with the Op-Ed editor prior to submitting at email@example.com.
When choosing which op-ed submissions to publish, we take into consideration the length of submissions and their time sensitivity. We will consider your submission for publication in this context, provided it fits the op-ed requirements. Our editing process follows Daily style rules, which are based on those of the Associated Press. We edit for clarity, and all op-eds go through a rigorous fact-checking process. We appreciate your availability throughout the time-sensitive editing process.
