  • Style & Editing Guidelines

    Writing should follow AP Style guidelines.

    Blog submissions should be between 800-1,000 words.

    Include a title, relevant subheads, bullets and numbers where appropriate to ensure easy and organized readability.

    All data, facts, quotes, charts, tables, etc. must be properly cited with a link to the original source.

    Original images and charts must be high resolution (300 dpi) and in .jpeg, or .png format.

    Your submission must be original, and not previously published online or in print. The content must be 100% unique; any violation of copyrighted material will not be accepted. By submitting your blog article to Simplilearn, you agree not to publish it elsewhere. You may, however, link to the article after it has been published by Simplilearn, on any website or social media channel you choose.

    By submitting your draft to Simplilearn, you give us complete editing rights. We’ll alert you once the article is live.

  • How to get your article approved by Simplilearn

    Submit your 800-1,000 word draft in MS Word format (.docx/.doc).

    Include a brief personal description of your professional qualifications and links to appropriate portfolios, websites, or LinkedIn profiles. This will be the biography that appears on your article upon publishing.

    Include a 300 x 300 pixel-minimum headshot of yourself to be included on the article page and your author page.

    Ensure the information in the article is well researched and up to date. The content must be informative and a valuable resource to our readers. Every article should include an engaging introduction and conclusion that makes clear who this article aims to benefit.

    While photos are not required (we may use our own where necessary) you may include any photos, charts or graphs to support your article. If they are not original and you don’t have permission to use them, include the link for them so that we may obtain permission or find a similar graphic that we can use in its place. Resolution minimum is 600 x 350 pixels and must in .jpeg, .gif or .png format. Images are to be attached separately and not inside the Word document. Ensure the images contain concise alternate texts and captions that accurately describe them.

    Submit your entry, bio, and photos to blog@simplilearn.com. We aim to reply within 7 days. If we choose not to publish the article, you maintain the right to publish it elsewhere.

Did we forget something? Send any questions you have about the submission process to blog@simplilearn.com. We’d be more than happy to answer them.
