The Best of the Wesleyan Web

Editorial Policy


Who can nominate?
Anyone can nominate any site, including their own.

Who can be nominated?
Sites must have some significant relationship to Wesleyan. Sites made entirely or mostly by students, faculty, staff, and alumni are eligible. Sites don't have to live on the Wesleyan webserver, or even on the Wesleyan network.

How long does a nomination stay in the running?
Once a site is nominated, it is left in the pool of candidate sites for four weeks. Thus, any site is always competing with four weeks's worth of candidates (minus those that have won already.) Sites that leave the pool can be re-nominated. Sites that undergo significant revision can win more than once.

What are the selection criteria?

Members of the editorial collective choose the Site of the Week on the basis of the following criteria:

Relevance
What is the relation of the site to the mission of the Wesleyan?
Use of the medium, usability, innovativeness
How well does the site take advantage of the unique properties afforded by the web?
Timeliness
When appropriate, does the site pertain to timely matters?
Depth and Breadth
How deeply does the site cover the material? What is the scope of the site?
Diversity
We want the sites to be drawn from the creative talents of students, faculty, staff, and alums. Collectively, we want the sites of the week to be representative of the entire Wesleyan community.

Who are the members of the editorial collective?
