Focused editions

As of March 2018, most editions of the Bulletin have a featured topic with a collection of articles (including the cover story) focused on one of the big contemporary issues in information and records management - and we want you to share your knowledge by submitting an article for inclusion in our highly-regarded bimonthly publication. 

The focus topics are:

January: Enterprise Content Management and EDRM
March: GDPR and Data Protection
May: [no focus - IRMS Annual Report]
July: [no focus - IRMS Conference Review]
September: Cyber Security and Information Security
November: Information Ethics / Truth and Trust

Each edition will still include a range of articles on other subjects, bringing you the latest thinking from across the information profession.

  • For readers, this will increase the anticipation of each edition as you will know exactly what to look forward to.
  • For authors, it offers the chance to share your knowledge with our 1000+ members alongside other experts in your specialism.
  • For advertisers, this will allow you to target your key audience by featuring your products and services alongside highly relevant content in a widely-marketed and distributed publication.

We're looking for contributors (old and new!) to be included in our pioneering focused editions, so if you've got something you'd like to share on any aspect of any of the above topics, get in touch today.

If you'd like to advertise in one or more of our focused editions, email Adele at Revolution Events or call +44 (0)1892 820937.
