Connect Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in UBC Science Connect, our alumni newsletter sent out five times a year.

Connect Story

The ideal Connect story:

  • Is about 50 words long. Brevity is the soul of wit!
  • Comes with a picture measuring at least 300 x 300 pixels.
  • Links to a webpage which contains more information.

Kudos and Events

We have a section called Kudos, which includes one-line items highlighting new appointments and awards. Kudos don’t require a photograph and should be no longer than 25 words.

Each issue of Connect we highlight three upcoming events. Event notices are up to 15 words long, include a photograph and a hyperlink.


You can submit stories to Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Stories should be sent 2-4 weeks in advance for inclusion in the next issue of Connect. If you have several items for inclusion, send them all in a single e-mail.

Unfortunately, due to space restrctions, we may not include all items in Connect.
