The National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) welcomes original submissions for consideration pertaining to any aspect of research administration. The core categories for contribution are listed below.
For submission consideration to any of these sections, authors are invited to email the appropriate contributing editor with their suggested article topic for consideration.
NOTE: NCURA strives for diversity of authors and may limit the number of times an individual author is published. In such an instance this will be at the discretion of the editorial team.
For submissions falling outside of these general categories, authors are invited to email their article topics (outline) to Senior Editor Toni Shaklee
For full contact information for the contributing or co-editors, please go to the Editors page.
All submissions should be in standard APA style. Details of this style, its citation format, etc. can be found at:
For references, endnotes are preferred as NCURA Magazine avoids the use of footnotes. The APA style has the author’s name and date in parentheses within the text, then an alpha listing of all references at the end of the paper. Please refer to the APA Publication Manual or the links above for specifics.
Articles should be between 600 and 1,300 words, approximately. All submissions should include with submission a business-style photo of the author, preferably in passport style. Photo files should be 300kb or larger. At the end of the article, please include a brief professional biography of the author(s), two or three sentences long and not more than 40 words, plus contact information. An example of a biography follows.
