From my experience, all editors care about is that you sedn along the sidebar info. The only way I've ever done it is to put this info on a sepearte page, or at the end of an e-mail, and label it sidebar. The editor then uses it or not, and puts it where he or she wants it. And depending on how space goes, what begins as a sidebar is sometimes incorporated directly into an article.

When the sidebar goes in a published article isn't always an easy decision. Magazines are put together like puzzles, each piece has to fit, and no two issues are exactly alike for all sorts of reasons. . . what advertising space is sold for that issue is always a huge factor. No matter what else happens, the ads have to be placed, and can't be made smaller or larger that what has been paid for. This means that sometimes a sidebar will be in one spot, sometimes in another. Whoever does the layout for the magazine puts it where it best fits in that particular issue.

It's a good idea to include a sidebar with most articles, even if the editor doesn't ask for one. The sidebar is separate from the article itself, and an editor can use it or not, or even incorporate the material into the article at times.

By no means am I trying to do the job of an editor. As I said in my previous entry, I am used to writing research articles for scholarly journals. In those manuscripts it is customary to type [insert Table 1 here]. This is not an editor's decision, it is the author's. That is why I asked--not because I have any delusions of gradeur about my role in the process.
