It is the view of the Newsletter Editorial Board that advertising is a legitimate source of revenue to support the publication.

The Newsletter Editorial Board is responsible for decisions on whether or not to publish an advertisement. In cases where agreement cannot be reached, the final decision will be made by the LMS Council.

The LMS policy on advertising in the LMS Newsletter is as follows:

  1. The Editorial Board reserves the right to refuse any advertising deemed inappropriate.
  2. Advertising which contravenes current legislation, particularly Equality and Diversity, will not be accepted.
  3. Advertisements which might damage the reputation of the Society will not be accepted.
  4. Advertising material must be able to be differentiated from editorial content.
  5. The claims made in an advertisement are not endorsed by the Newsletter Editorial Board or LMS Council.
