Developing Useful Methods (UMs)
How to Propose new Useful Methods (UMs)
If you’re interested in submitting a new Useful Method, please consult our complete list of subject categories.
As a member, you may submit a proposal for a new Useful Method. You can send a preliminary draft, which contains a description of the scope, to [email protected].
After your proposal is submitted, the Standards Manager will work with you to ensure that the proper format and procedure is followed, as outlined in the UM Guidelines.
Useful Methods Guidelines
If you are at the writing stage for your Useful Method, you can download the UM Guidelines. These guidelines describe the procedures and policies used to develop and publish Useful Methods. They also contain all the style and formatting information you will require.
In many ways, the UM Guidelines are similar to the Standards Guidelines, but are more flexible.
