The Nucleus accepts submissions, day and night, at any point throughout the year - but to make it relative and unique to a certain time of year, or corresponding event, we have word themes. Below are our submission deadlines for each Issue and their individual themes:
Inside an average Issue we have four seperate sections:
As the Nucleus is also a platform for you as a student to express your thoughts and feelings about something at UNE, we also have "Letters to the Editors" - a way for you to publicly voice a concern that the UNE cohort (including staff) will have the opportunity to see, read and think about.
We, the Editors of the Nucleus, have the right to edit any submissions within reason. This includes grammar, spelling and structure. We will not change the meaning of your article.
If your article does not comply to the journalist code of ethics, we have the right to either:
Any major editing that changes the overall meaning of your article will be shown to you for your approval. We are happy to work with you to help you produce an article that meets the code of ethics. Any further issues regarding an article will be discussed.
If you are unhappy with how your article has been edited once it has been published, we give you the right of reply for the next edition to write about your article if you believe the meaning has been changed.
If you do not give approval of our editing before our submission deadline, your article will not be put into the Nucleus - it will be saved for the next edition if approved.
In the "Contact Us" section of this website you'll find a way to send us any text-based only articles or letters.
If you choose to be anonymous with your submission, do not put an email or name along with your submission. As we cannot then contact you regarding editing, we, the editors, have the right to edit the submission accordingly. If you are displeased with the editing that has been done to your article once it has been published, you have the right of reply for the next edition in the form of a letter to the editor.
If you ever want to email us directly you can find our email address at the bottom of the page, in the Contact Us page or even our Facebook page.
