Guidelines

Welcome to Gatan Research Spotlight! Research Spotlight provides electron microscopists like you the opportunity highlight your laboratory’s work, recognize team members, encourage collaboration, plus share memorable images created on your electron microscope. Below is the submission form, plus information outlining how to write and submit your laboratory’s Research Spotlight.

Register

Laboratory overview

Each laboratory overview should be approximately 250 to 500 words in length. Key attributes to highlight include team name or department, a short description of your research, plus key image(s) you want to feature created using Gatan products. It should be written in a clear and concise style aimed at a readership that is scientifically qualified, although not necessarily familiar with your specific subject. Overviews should be submitted using the submission form.

Gatan reserves the right to edit any laboratory overview for minor changes. However, every effort will be made to ensure that the sense and overall character of the laboratory overview remains intact.

Appropriate content should be provided for each Research Spotlight submission, including image title, image(s) of interest, plus image caption. These should be included on the submission form as BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG or TIF files.

References

References can be included in the laboratory overview section, but should be directly relevant to your featured images. Please number each reference sequentially as they appear in the text, then list after the laboratory overview.

Team picture

To show off key members of your laboratory, just snap a photo, then attach it to your submission form. These should be submitted as BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG or TIF files. Please also don’t forget to include your team member’s names to appear in the caption below the photo.
