New Extension publications will be published as HTML web pages and optimized for mobile and search. All HTML web pages can be printed and saved as PDFs. If a document must be formatted as a PDF, please submit a design request through the Extension project request form after the peer review process.
Below are the steps for the Extension HTML publishing process:
Step 1 - Content Review
All content must be research-based, unbiased and without advocacy.
Choose a peer review path:
- Peer review not necessary (content is informational or has already been peer reviewed)
- FastTrack (blind peer review)
- Programmatic area review (based on department standards)
Step 2 - Content Editing, Plagiarism Check, and Photo Verification
Author submits MS Word file via the Extension project request form. If not using the Extension photo gallery, include a list of sources for photos and document permission to use them. (Consider referencing this MS Word style guide for the document.)
Step 3 - Posting Content to the Web
The final version of the document will be emailed to the author and the website editor of the website requested in the Extension project request form (in step 2 above) for posting online.
Step 4 - Content Optimization
After content is posted to the website, the digital marketing team will optimize it for search engine optimization by adding keywords, tags, and links to related content.
Step 5 - Edit or Provide Feedback on Posted Content
Make an edit or provide feedback for content that is already online.
