CHIPS Article Submission Guidelines
CHIPS Magazine is published exclusively online by the U.S. Department of the Navy and sponsored by the DON Chief Information Officer (DON CIO) and the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic.

CHIPS motto states: "Dedicated to Sharing Information, Technology, Experience."

We publish four editions per year, January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December, with a different theme selected for each edition, for example, the theme for the January-March 2018 edition is data science and its application in U.S. Navy warfare and business operations. New editions are generally published by the third week of the last month in a quarter. In addition, we publish news updates each business day.

CHIPS welcomes articles from our readers and we encourage your feedback. Please submit articles or suggestions via e-mail as Microsoft Word or text file attachments to

You may submit illustrations and photos to complement your article, but do not embed photos or graphics within your Word document. Please email them as separate jpeg or png files with a resolution of 300 dpi for best results. Please provide a caption for your illustrations and photos and include first and last names when identifying people in a photo.

Please submit your article to your public affairs officer and chain of command for public release approval before you submit your article to CHIPS.

We reserve the right to edit articles according to the Associated Press Stylebook, the U.S. Navy Style Guide and guidance from the Chief of Navy Information (CHINFO). Subject matter experts review each article for technical accuracy and to ensure conformance to CHINFO guidelines. CHIPS uses a news format as opposed to a research or academic paper. Please avoid use of footnotes, instead, place your references within the body of the article text.

CHIPS is published by the U.S. Department of the Navy, as such, we cannot accept advertising or publish press releases from commercial entities. Articles for publication must be submitted by a U.S. government agency or U.S. military command.
