  • preferably as accessible formatted documents
  • reduces the number of places people have to look to get a question answered to understand why they are having to work on the project

Communication

  • Include key deadlines and communication schedules in the guide if those are available.
  • You may want to use the a guide like this as a living document, but be sure to explain to your authors that you may be making updates.
    • Sending regular emails with any major guide changes, events, and accomplishments was useful to keep on track
      • Consider having a consistent email subject line so it will be easy for authors to tag, filter, and find your communications.
