Message From the Director
OVC's Publishing Guidelines for Print and Web Media describe
the criteria grantees and contractors must follow when submitting
materials to OVC to be published. OVC is committed to producing
quality products and welcomes this opportunity to help you develop
dynamic and useful products that will both inspire
and instruct the victims' rights and services community.
You may have noticed an increased number of products released
exclusively on the OVC Web site. The Internet has become an increasingly
important way to share information, and OVC has accepted the challenge
to communicate effectively in this new environment. This guide,
which has been expanded to include tips on preparing information
for the Web, will help youthe grantee or contractordevelop
and organize text and format the information in a way that expedites
the publishing process.
As the federal office responsible for meeting the needs and protecting
the rights of our Nation's crime victims, we look forward
to working with you to produce products that meet or exceed professional
standards of excellence.
John W. Gillis
Director, Office for Victims of Crime
