Solutions Review Contributor Guidelines: Expert Insights Series

Solutions Review Contributor Guidelines

Solutions Review contributor guidelines are for Expert Insights Series submissions.

All materials submitted to Solutions Review for consideration in our Expert Insights Series must align with three overarching objectives:

  • Provide forward-thinking analysis that helps business software practitioners and buyers remain on-trend
  • Offer best practices for successful implementation, deployment, and piloting
  • Provide decision support during product/vendor evaluations

Solutions Review Contributor Guidelines: Requirements

  • Content must be written by an industry expert: C-level, technical or product leaders, no marketers
  • Articles must be accompanied by an author biography and headshot
  • Content must remain vendor-neutral, technology agnostic, and non-promotional
  • Articles may not promote or attempt to sell a specific software tool
  • Articles must meet a minimum word count of 750 words
  • Solutions Review must be the exclusive publisher
  • Contributors must connect with Solutions Review category editors on LinkedIn for promotion amplification
  • Final content submissions made via Google doc

Note: Contributor biographies must meet the same guidelines on non-promotion as listed above.

Solutions Review Contributor Guidelines: The Role of Our Editors

Note: Solutions Review editors reserve the right to edit articles for web content style: readability, grammar, and SEO.

During the pre-publishing process, Solutions Review editors will:

  • Create dedicated author byline for contributors.
  • Edit for web content style, as mentioned above.
  • Create custom graphics to pair with accepted contributions.
  • Add or remove links based on our style guidelines and ability to add business value.

During the post-publishing process, Solutions Review editors may:

  • Re-optimize articles for SEO (if necessary).
  • Share to Solutions Review’s growing Universe of Influence on LinkedIn and Twitter.
  • E-mail promotion to our database of verified business software buyers and end-users.

Solutions Review Contributor Guidelines: Style

  • Do not double-space after periods.
  • Add relevant and resourceful hyperlinks (we reserve the right to edit).
  • The Oxford comma is OK.
  • Percent is used as a word, not a symbol.
  • Numbers under 10 are written out unless coming before the word “percent.” Numbers 10 or higher are written as numbers.
  • If you’re going to use acronyms, do so only after using the full version of the word or phrase.
  • When referencing a name for the first time, use a full name. For subsequent references, use the last name only.
