Guidelines for Submitting Announcements

The Harvard Catalyst newsletter is sent by email on a biweekly basis, and includes news, announcements, and events from Harvard Catalyst.

We accept announcement submissions about upcoming courses, events, and resources that relate to clinical and translational research, and are open to the Harvard Catalyst community, which includes all Harvard schools and the affiliated hospitals. In addition to submitting an event to us, please also add it to the HMS calendar.

Procedure for submitting announcements for the newsletter: Announcements must be submitted by email before 2:00pm on the Thursday before the week you would like your announcement to appear in the newsletter.

Template for submitting announcements: All announcements are edited according to AP Style and Harvard Catalyst editorial guidelines. Editing is also done to make posting brief, readable, and engaging.

  • Title: Typically fewer than eight words, and conveys the 'big picture' about the announcement.
  • Excerpt: A short, catchy blurb that entices readers to find out more information. For an event, clearly outline the date, time, location, and RSVP/contact information.
  • URL: Always include a URL for more information.

Here is an example submission:
