French term or phrase: ligne editoriale
"Les journaux du group et le renvoi a l'enseigne:

Pour renvoyer a l'enseigne, il faut que l'enseigne soit presente tout au long de la ligne editoriale chaque fois que c'est possible"

Does this simply refer to the editorial content of the publication or is it something more specific?
Thanks, Karen

editorial policy, editorial line
Explanation:
It is referring to the guiding principles of an editorial department or a communications department. The policy will be set out in editorial guidelines, if in existence, but it is not quite the same thing as saying they ARE the editorial guidelines.

editorial guidelines


Explanation:
I have a bias for your first guess

"A concise, well-written piece accompanied by a quality photo and caption will get into the newspaper. First of all, the work is done. Some minor editing is all that will be required to insure the article conforms to the newspaper's editorial guidelines. Stick to one topic in any article. Don't cram it full of disjointed information. In that case, if it runs at all, it will be so severely edited you won't recognize it. It is more likely to be completely rejected."
