If you have found an external publication featuring pertinent Yale related news, you should submit it as an “External News” article.
There are a lot of possible fields to fill out for an external article, which give users a wide variety of display options. However, there are only a few fields that are required. The purpose of these instructions is to guide you through creating a basic news article.
Never copy news articles you or another Yale faculty or staff member has written for display on the websites and submit them as External News.
If you don’t want to write a custom summary, the first few sentences of the article or the article subtitle may suffice.
Then, click Continue to move on to the next step.
The byline date will appear as the publish date for your article.
If you select a byline date in the future, your article will be embargoed until that date. In other words, your article will not appear on websites until the byline date and time has passed, even if the article is approved before then.
People & Organizations
You’ll notice, after you have clicked Continue that the wizard for the External Article jumps ahead a few steps to the “People and Organizations” tag.
This is because, as you are simply referencing an external piece of work owned by an organization that is not affiliated with Yale, you are not actually entering any copyrighted material into our system. Instead, you are prompted to tag the relevant Yale Faculty and Staff and/or organizations associated with this particular article.
