From the Harvard Magazine guidelines:

Harvard Magazine is an alumni publication for the graduates, faculty, and staff of Harvard University. Its contents are about the extended Harvard community—research, teaching, and the lives of community members. Accordingly, story ideas not strongly related to Harvard are unlikely to be right for the magazine. In addition to a small staff of writers and editors, who produce a significant proportion of the contents, we hire freelance writers for most sections, and assign illustrations and photography for each issue.

The magazine's contents are principally journalistic. Faculty opinion pieces, published in "Forum," are exclusively assigned internally. Although the magazine occasionally uses personal essays or humor, such pieces are necessarily subject to evaluation of the executed piece and cannot be assigned on a guaranteed basis. Because of limited space and the constraints of readers' interest, the magazine does not generally have room to publish personal recollections about an individual's college experience, and does not seek remembrances about deceased individuals beyond those published in the obituary notices.
