We consider only completed articles and do not provide guidance on ideas or proposals. Submissions that are direct sales pieces or include overly promotional language will not be published.Countless other factors affect whether an opinion article is suitable for publication, including space constraints, timeliness and relevance. You need not possess any special expertise to have your article considered for publication, though if you do, please elaborate.
We do our best to read all submissions promptly and will contact you within five business days (excluding weekends and holidays) if we are interested in publishing your article. If you do not hear from us in a week, it is safe to assume we will not be able to use your article. Submissions that require rigorous editing will not be used.
Prospective authors are required to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest, including but not limited to any financial interest in any product, firm, or commercial venture relevant to their submission. Failure to do so will result in prominently placed corrections.
