FastTracking the UME Publications Process
Publications that appear beneath the UME banner should reflect the highest standards of excellence possible. That not only includes the scholarship and research that led to their development but the attention to detail that is necessary for effective publishing. All of our publications must meet certain standards in order to be prepared for both printed and online formats. This includes federally-mandated accessibility regulations as well as University-mandated statements. The majority of the latter are found within the UME publication templates and are added to a document during the publication process. Others are the responsibility of the author(s) who develop the drafts. With that in mind, the UME Publications Team has developed these Publications Guidelines. Each submission to the FastTrack system should follow these guidelines in order to make the review, editing, and publishing process as smooth as possible.
On behalf of the UME Publishing Team, welcome. We hope that you find the following resources useful as you navigate your way through the publishing process.
If you are new to the FastTrack process, or even if you have published with UME before, please take the time to read each page in the sections listed below. We will take you step-by-step through the process - from your initial draft to your finished publication - as we address the most common questions and concerns that authors have raised.
