Here are some important guidelines for ENVX editors:
- First, the all-important LC writing guide! Make sure to consult its related guide to writing for the web and style guide. The ENVS Program has a brief summary of style guidelines, which you should consult as well.
- The writing guide has important recommendations for details such as capitalization. In our case, environmental studies is only capitalized if you are saying Environmental Studies Program and not environmental studies major, or basically anything else (here’s their SOAN example)
- Remember that all links to sites outside /envx/ should be made to a new tab or window; this can readily be done in WP editing mode.
- Even though each post will automagically include a link to all contributor resources (the original source, not the contributor resource CPT on this site), it’s a good idea to link liberally in your post itself as well…the more opportunities for the reader to connect with the material you are discussing, the better. And, since we are featuring student digital scholarship, call out their name in your post.
- Make sure your featured image is detailed enough to show up as a backstretch (full-width) image; typically 1200 pixel width is a good minimum. Also, make sure the width to height ratio is appropriate; if it’s too high (i.e., more of a portrait than landscape image) you’ll need to crop it.
