Author guidelines for the New Zealand Coach magazine

The New Zealand Coach welcomes contributions to be considered as articles for publication. Please be aware that all articles pass through a blind review process, whereby the article is sent to an editorial board member for review and comment.

The following guidelines should be followed when submitting an article for consideration.

  1. Maximum 1500 words (unless intended to be presented as a two or three-part series).

  2. User-friendly writing style.

  3. Clear distinction between articles that are science-based, and those which are based on the author's opinion/experience/anecdotes.

  4. Limited use of tables and graphs - no standard deviations, probability scales, or statistical methodologies are necessary. (If readers need more details, they should be encouraged to go to the source material - original report or direct to the author.)

  5. Where references are used, if there is sufficient space they will be published, however normally readers are referred back to the Hillary Commission for a copy.

  6. Photographs (preferably black and white) may be included with articles.

  7. Articles should be sent in, preferably with the text saved on a 3.5" disk, with accompanying hard copy.

  8. Articles should be accompanied by a photo (preferably a head and shoulders, black and white) of the author, to be published with the article.

Coaching New Zealand has Apple Macintosh equipment. Text from a PC needs to be saved on a 3.5" disk as a 'text only' file.
