If for example you don’t have any images to accompany a written piece, we can source these for you.

Hyperlinks to relevant background information may be included, but we don’t generally encourage academic references, unless there is a clear need for these. Please attach images in jpg or jpeg format as seperate files, provide captions/credits, and rename them appropriately so we can insert them into the article on the webpage.
