Advocate Editorial Policies

  • Advocate articles may serve to promote the work and goals of GSA, but are not required to; news and feature articles can explore the work of organizations outside of GSA.
  • Advocate articles will not promote any one company or organization, product or technology for sales and marketing purposes.
  • Advocate editorial coverage cannot be purchased. GSA members may approach the Advocate with story ideas; the Editorial Manager determines appropriate coverage.
  • All summarized articles that were first published in other established scientific journals are done so with the permission of both the author and the publication; Advocate articles provide links to all original publications.
