The Editorial Process for Pages

We use a quality control process that ensures content is ready for public viewing, with three levels of responsibility: author, section publisher, and Web Team.


An author is responsible for creating or editing web pages. This includes preparing text as well as gathering appropriate images or non-HTML documents. An author can create a new page or a new draft of an existing page. Drafts are sent to the Web Team or a section publisher for approval by setting them to "Needs Review." Any UUA staffer can be an author.

Section Publishers

Section publishers are responsible for checking the appropriateness of pages for publication. In addition to confirming that the Web Standards & Style Guides have been followed, a section publisher checks that the content is published or advertised in the appropriate area(s) of

The Web Team

The Web Team oversees all of and has the authority to override an author or section publisher's changes to a web page if necessary. The team can also impose additional workflow requirements upon areas that do not follow the typical process.

The Web Team reviews pages, images, and documents for appropriate content, style and usability standards.

Training and Support

Any UUA staffer can log into and create drafts of pages. Instructions are on the UUA's intranet and training is always available from the Web Team.
