FLC NewsLink Section Guidelines

Lab News: These short articles (1-3 paragraphs) highlight news of interest regarding federal laboratory technology transfer. Possible topics include: awards received, milestones reached, major personnel or lab changes, new equipment/facilities, upcoming events, new publications/services, etc.

Featured Lab: These are feature-length articles highlighting the services, facilities, efforts, expertise, and technology areas of a specific laboratory or research center. Length should be 700-1500 words.

Lab Spotlight: These short pieces pinpoint specific innovative activities or features at a federal laboratory, generally relating to the month’s theme.  A good image is a key component of these pieces.

Ready for Transfer: These short articles (approximately 200 words) highlight technologies available for licensing/commercialization from federal labs. The preferred format is: short description of the technology, its benefits/advantages, and its potential applications. Be sure to include a point of contact—either a website or a person’s name, telephone number, and email address.

Tech Transfer Works: These longer articles (400-500 words) focus on successful transfers from federal labs to the private sector or state and local government. These stories should describe the technology transferred, its original use, how it is being used, tech transfer mechanisms used, and the benefits to the recipient(s) and society. If possible, please include comments on lessons learned or quotes from involved parties. These stories should relate to the technology focus area for the month, but timely stories are also accepted.

Upcoming Events/T2 Events: These brief articles describe upcoming meetings of interest to tech transfer personnel. Please provide the name of the meeting, date, location, theme, sponsor(s), a few sentences describing the meeting/event, and a point of contact—either a website address or a person’s name, phone number, and email.

Feature Articles: The FLC NewsLink editorial staff is also searching for suggestions for feature story ideas. If you have a story idea, contact the FLC Management Support Office.
