Insight – Editorial Guidelines

General
Insight is read by a wide cross section of people with an interest in the built environment, whether as; occupiers (including directors, facilities managers, office managers etc), IT managers, HR managers, general managers; specifiers (including architects, designers and fit-out firms); or as service providers including corporate real estate specialists, facilities services providers, lawyers, health and safety consultants and so on. For this reason editorial should be easily accessible to a wide audience. Articles and other contributions will also be subject to editing.

Approach 
All contributions should be written from the point of view of the manager, decision maker, employee, specifier or buyer, not the supplier. Please aim to approach the subject in an open, balanced way and be informative and if possible entertaining. Points should be illustrated with practical examples and quotes from practitioners and other sources. Writing should be lively and non-academic unless requested although all sources must be quoted. We love hyperlinks in the text. Jargon will be ruthlessly excised unless a broad base of readers is familiar with it. Stick to word counts. Please avoid all puffs for products or services, which could undermine the credibility of the piece and, accordingly, will be chopped with extreme prejudice or lead to the rejection of the piece. The readers are an intelligent bunch. If you’re an office furniture company writing about ergonomics or office design, for example, they’ll get it and they’ll like you more for not selling to them. That can wait. Enjoy yourself. Be bold.

Visuals
Please supply or at the very least suggest sources for visuals. Please supply digital images in JPEG format (ideally) to mark@workplaceinsight.net or sara@workplaceinsight.net. Imaginative visuals are most welcome.
