To find out more about how to see your thoughts, opinions and research on TrainingZONE read on.

1) Monday Feature
At the start of each week, we publish a feature which broadly fits in with that month's theme. The themes for 2005 and editorial guidelines are below. Features should be 500-1000 words long.

January: The Training Cycle – training needs analysis, evaluation, training strategy, tracking skills

February: Coaching and Mentoring

March: IT Training

April: E-learning

May: Management/ Leadership Development

June: Team Building and Team Development

July: Public Sector Training

August: Training Methods

September:Blended Learning

October: Training Software

November: Train the Trainer/ Trainer Development

December: Training Trends

Deadlines: Contact the editor as soon as possible if you have an idea for a feature that fits with a monthly theme. The deadline for submitting ideas/ expressions of interest is the 1st of preceding month and the deadline for submitting a feature is 20th of preceding month eg if you are interested in submitting something on March's theme of IT training, contact the editor to express this interest by 1 February and submit the feature by 20 February. These deadlines can be flexible. Contact the editor Claire Savage

2) The Way I See It…
Each Thursday we publish an opinion piece, where the author gets to give their thoughts on a topic that is allied to training and development. This is very much a chance to jump on the soapbox about anything you feel strongly about. It could be an opinion about the best form of evaluation, how to motivate people or a rally against business-speak, we really are open to your suggestions. The wordcount for these features is circa 500 words. As this is a weekly feature, the deadline is flexible. If you would like to see some examples of The Way I See articles click on the links below:
Business Cliches
* What's the Point of Leadership Programmes?
* Training Must Make a Radical Difference
* 11 Myths about Coaching
* Train to Retain

3) Case studies:
These are also published each week, on a Wednesday. This is a place to share best practice and explain how your organisation achieved results in a specific area of training and development. Case studies often, but not always, fit with the monthly themes (see above). The wordcount is circa 500 words and the deadlines are flexible. Contact the editor Claire Savage for more information on submitting a case study or to see examples of case studies published in the past.

4) How Did I Get Here?

5) Editorial Guidelines
Overall content: Our editorial policy is not to use material directly promoting an organisation's goods and services. Instead, we publish original contributed features containing specific viewpoints on training-related subjects, advice guides and opinion pieces commenting on customer experiences or experiences of the training market itself.

Format: People tend to scan read on the Internet - it is a habit we are all developing in response to the massive amount of information available. So it's good to alert readers quickly to what you are going to put before them, by using headings through a long piece, and splitting the text into relatively short paragraphs.
