Editorial focus: ebizQ now focuses primarily on business process management (BPM) and closely related issues. All proposals and contributions should include a clear BPM angle.
Editorial content: ebizQ welcomes ideas for editorial content from IT journalists, authors, analysts, consultants and other independent contributors. Please e-mail the appropriate site editor with a brief proposal for your article, Q & A or podcast. See our guidelines for more detailed information on proposing such content.
Bylined articles: ebizQ no longer accepts bylined articles from IT industry sources. However, representatives of vendor companies are welcome to contribute their opinions to the ebizQ Forum.
Editorial calendar: At this time, ebizQ doesn’t publish an editorial calendar. Prospective contributors are encouraged to simply propose ideas on any aspect of BPM.
For more information, contact Site Editor Anne Stuart, email@example.com.
Editorial guidelines: Editorial contributions for ebizQ should:
- Focus on squarely on BPM or a closely related issue.
- Be targeted to ebizQ’s audience of upper-level IT and business executives.
- Run about 600 to 1,000 words long (or be able to be divided into a series).
- Be vendor-neutral, with no mention or endorsement of companies or products.
- Cite sources for all statistics and research findings. For instance, if you say that 70 % of users do X or Y, you need to identify the source for that fact.
- Include a brief author/company bio at the end.
We prefer a writing style that’s professional yet conversational, rather than academic. The goal should be informing readers rather than marketing to them. Please use standard U.S. spelling and, if possible, adhere to Associated Press (AP) style. Please fact-check, spell-check and proofread articles before submitting them.
To propose an article, Q & A or other editorial content, e-mail Site Editor Anne Stuart, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “proposed editorial content” in the subject line.
We welcome suggestions for podcasts on BPM-related topics with industry analysts, consultants and authors. Podcasts are short (5-8 minute) interviews that staffers record over the phone, edit and publish on the site. The staffer and interview subject speak beforehand to develop questions to be answered during the interview. Podcasts are typically a discussion of thought leadership or best practices in a particular area or about an industry trend.
To propose a podcast, e-mail Peter Schooff, email@example.com. Please include “podcast proposal” in the subject line.
