Short, Clever Title
The subhead for your article pulls in readers, in tandem with your short, clever title,
to provide a provocative, one-sentence description of your article's contents.
by Your Name
Use this template to help get your article started—just substitute your content for what’s written here. Our standard format is 12-point Times New Roman Font with 1 inch margins, double-spaced. Keep paragraphs aligned to the left, but put an extra line of space between each. Our articles are usually between 1,000 and 1,600 words. This first section is your Introduction.
Each section should be marked with a short subhead, or title, relating to what you’re going to discuss. Can’t think of any right now? Add them after you’ve finished.
To cite sources in your article, just write out the title of the reference and the author in the paragraph. If there’s a link to the cited material, provide that as well.
Your article will have a clear beginning, middle and end. The beginning grabs the reader and lays out the issue in simple terms. That transitions naturally to the middle, where the reader learns how the issue came about, relevant details about the issue, and how the issue was solved.
Images and Captions
Along with your article, submit photos, charts and other images that will help illustrate your article. Please make sure to include a brief caption for each, and a credit for the image. See example below.
Virtually every Army AL&T article ends with a definite conclusion, and it is labeled as such. Once you’ve written your conclusion, you’ll need to add two more things to the bottom of the article: the “for more information” paragraph and the author biographies. Use italic font to write both, and write the author names at the beginning of the biographies in all capital letters.
For more information….here, include a link to a website or an individual contact so that readers can get more information on the subject you’re discussing.
BIOGRAPHY Here, you’ll provide a short biography of each author, with the same name as in the byline. Biographies should begin with rank or title, continue with education (highest degrees first), and any DAWIA certifications. And now you’re done!
