Connections Magazine Article Submission Guidelines

Connections Magazine welcomes articles of potential interest to our readers, who are primarily in the outsourcing call center, or teleservice call center industry. This information is provided so that you can submit articles with the greatest chance of being accepted for publication. We look forward to receiving your articles and sharing it with our readers; these guidelines will help us to achieve this goal.

General Guidelines: For your article, select a topic of relevant interest to our readers and which you have ample personal knowledge or experience. An ideal length is 800 to 1,200 words. Longer articles will generally be edited for length or used as a whitepaper. Submissions should not include any self-promotion of the author or the author’s company. Unfortunately, not all submissions can be used.

Editing: Accepted articles will be edited for length, style, grammar, organization, syntax, and clarity; additional text could be added. This is at the sole discretion of Connections Magazine and should not be taken personally; it is a reality of publishing. When editing, we will act in good faith to preserve your intended message; it is not practical to notify authors of edits.

Website: Once published in the magazine, your article will also be included in the Articles section on the Connections website. Over 1,100 articles are currently on-line. Even though Connections Magazine has a incredibly long “shelf” life, the website further extends your article’s impact.

Compensation: Connections Magazine is not able to compensate writers. We also feel it is inappropriate to trade articles for ad space, press release considerations, or other rewards. We do ask you to include a short editorial-style write-up about yourself; a high resolution digital photo is optional. These will be added at the conclusion of your article, providing indirect promotion in exchange for your article.

Submission: All articles must be submitted via email, attached as a Microsoft Word document. .

Deadlines: Connections Magazine accepts submissions on a continual basis and will use them as soon as possible, which might not be the next issue. The sooner that an article is submitted, the sooner it can be used. Refer to our submission deadlines for the latest that it can be submitted for possible consideration in a particular issue.
