you are interested in submitting an article to Army Sustainment,
here are a few suggestions that may be helpful. Before you begin
writing, review a past issue of Army Logistician/Sustainment;
it will be your best guide. Keep your writing simple and straightforward
it back to yourself); attribute all quotes; avoid footnotes (Army
Sustainment is not an academic journal);
and identify all acronyms and technical terms. Army Sustainment’s readership
is broad; do not assume that those reading your article are necessarily
or that they have background knowledge of your subject.
Do not worry too much about length; just tell your story, and we
will work with you if length is a problem. However, if your article
is more than 4,000 words,
you can expect some cutting.
Do not submit your article in a layout format. A simple Word document is best.
Do not embed photos, charts, or other graphics in your text. Any graphics you
think will work well in illustrating your article should be submitted as separate
files. Make sure that all graphics can be opened for editing by the Army
Photos are a great asset for most articles, so we strongly encourage them. Photos
may be in color or black and white. Photos submitted electronically must have
a resolution of at least 300 dpi (.jpg or .tif). Prints of photos may be submitted
by mail. Please try to minimize use of PowerPoint charts; they usually do not
reproduce well, and we seldom have the space to make them as large as they should
Army Sustainment publishes only original articles, so please
do not “market” your
article. Ask your public affairs office for official clearance for open publication
before submission to Army Sustainment. A clearance
statement from the public affairs office should accompany your submission. Exceptions
to this requirement
include historical articles and those that reflect a personal opinion or contain
a personal suggestion. If you have questions about this requirement, please contact
us at email@example.com or (804) 765–4761 or DSN 539–4761.
