The Content Editor's Checklist

Where does my submitted content go?

When you write something for publication on the McCombs website, there is an editorial process in place to be sure it meets certain standards. Whether you’re an administrator updating a conferences page or a dean addressing your entire department, your content is submitted directly to the content editors on the Web Team. We want you to have an idea of what we look for when either approving your content for publication, or rejecting it. If you’ve ever had content rejected, you’ll notice we send along comments that alert you to the error. This guide will allow you to avoid that situation entirely, so that your content can be posted quickly, while maintaining the strict standards for publishing on the McCombs website.

How much does the Web Team fix?

The amount of editing we will perform on your content depends on how many fixes are needed. Although we expect all submissions to be proofread and checked for misspelling, we will fix most typos. If there are links in the headings, we will ask you to remove them yourself. We don’t have a lot of time to correct errors, but if you, say, capitalized something needlessly, and the rest of your page is on point, we’ll make certain small fixes. Please reference the UT Writer’s Style Guide for assistance with writing your content.

When will my new content be published on the website?

If you want your page to be published in the first round of the day (live by mid-day), submit by 10 a.m.
If you submit by 3:30 p.m. your new content should be live that evening.
Be prepared to wait an entire day for your content to go live. Submit as early as possible if you’re under specific time constraints.
