Editorial guidelines

The PHANZ website, social media channels, newsletters and journal have been developed to support the public health workforce. We invite contributions from members, supporters and friends of the PHANZ.

Articles for use in our pānui/newsletters and social media channels should be 100-200 words in length, longer articles can be published to our website blog and accompanied with a brief abstract in the newsletter and/or on social media. Newsletter articles can also feature a link to a pdf.

Please note, advertising of events, job vacancies, conferences and courses are subject to a fee. We reserve the right to waive this fee for our strategic partners. We usually include free events in our newsletter without charging a fee.
