Press Release Guidelines for T.H.E. Journal
How to Submit Story Ideas and Press Releases
T.H.E. Journal provides an integrated channel of print and e-media to efficiently reach K-12 administrators and teachers who recommend, specify, or approve the purchase of technology for their districts, schools, and classrooms.
T.H.E. Journal’s media franchise consists of T.H.E. Journal magazine, thejournal.com, EduHound.com, electronic newsletters, T.H.E. Institute (consulting and professional development), and targeted list rental opportunities.
Each issue contains news, trends, and "how-to" features on topics such as networking, security, policy and advocacy, telecom, hardware/software, the smart classroom, mobile computing and wireless, eLearning, technology funding, professional development, technology support—all the important issues for administration and teaching. Each month, T.H.E. Journal also contains product reviews, best practices, peer-written articles, and "in-the-trenches" reporting.
How to Pitch Story Ideas
Advertisers have no advantage in editorial contribution; editorial decisions are based solely on the value of information to our readers.
Briefly, we look for real-life case studies and one-on-one interviews with higher education leaders and managers. There are also opportunities for editorial panelists, and for judges for surveys, critiques, and award programs. In the case of contributed articles, the magazine encourages opinion submissions, which may be forwarded at any time, and will consider other articles for publication, provided a brief "pitch" or abstract is submitted first.
You may pitch directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is most helpful to pitch directly against a story slot on the Editorial Calendar. Make sure to identify the editorial story slot in your subject box (e.g., "June Object-Oriented Technology story"). Please allow 2-3 weeks for response to story pitches.
Still not sure how to get involved? Call Managing Editor Michael Hart at 818-814-5283.
Article Lead Times
Feature articles are usually assigned three (3) months ahead of the issue date; opinion pieces may be submitted at any time.
