This can include your own research or that of others, but if it involves someone else's work, their permission is required. Please provide a photo release for such submissions.

If the photograph has been taken on private property or in a restricted location, such as a locked laboratory, permission from a representative of the location is required, and please ensure to provide a photo release form.
