New Product Announcements
GEN offers biotechnology tool providers a compelling way to promote their new products. All new product announcements should be sent to Patrice Bartell at pbartell@genengnews.com. Please send a full product description, company name, website, and product shot with a resolution of 300 dpi at 5-inches wide. Submission of the high-resolution electronic image of the product is mandatory. Logos are not accepted. Additionally, a product-specific video can be posted along with a new product announcement on GEN’s website for a fee of $995. Videos must be submitted in web-ready flash format.

Feature Articles
GEN’s editorial calendar lists the feature articles for each issue. If you want your company included in a particular article, please contact John Sterling at jsterling@genengnews.com three months prior to the publication date (clearly indicating the issue and topic in the subject line of your email message), as this is generally when articles are assigned.

GEN publishes Drug Discovery, Assay, Bioprocess, and Translational Medicine Tutorials in every issue. We welcome queries for submissions of tutorials outlining the use of a particular technology or application. These semi-technical articles should preferably include numerical and/or pictographic data (three graphics maximum, including tables). Please avoid marketing descriptions or advertorial writing; it is GEN’s policy to focus on the science. This is an opportunity to highlight the technical strengths of your company’s product or service. Note that we do not include references; tutorials are technical application notes and not data-rigorous presentations such as peer-reviewed submissions.
As tutorials are not usually time-sensitive, GEN schedules these articles many months in advance. You may wish to time the publication of your tutorial with a particular issue given its editorial focus or its intended distribution. If so, please query us well in advance to ensure that a particular slot is available. As space varies, however, inclusion in a particular issue cannot be guaranteed.

Please contact John Sterling (jsterling@genengnews.com) or Tamlyn Oliver (toliver@genengnews.com) to pitch a tutorial idea. If your tutorial query is accepted, we will contact you with detailed submission requirements and guidelines for submitting electronic graphics. GEN is now accepting video submissions to accompany tutorials. Cost for videos is $995. Videos must be submitted in web-ready flash format.

Drug Discovery Tutorials cover technology related to high-throughput screening, target identification, validation, etc., that is used to identify and develop biopharmaceutical compounds and small molecules. Word count: 1,000–1,200 words.

Assay Tutorials cover technology relating to assays for drug discovery and development. Word count: 1,000–1,200 words.

Bioprocess Tutorials cover technology, from bioreactors to media to cell lines, relating to cell culture, scale-up, process transfer, etc. Word count: 1,000–1,200 words.

Translational Medicine Tutorials cover clinical research and technology and methods for the manufacture and production of molecular diagnostic products. Word count: 1,000–1,200 words.

*Note that GEN does not solicit payment for any editorial coverage and respects all embargoes.
