Feature Articles: Featured articles are usually between 1,200 and 2,000 words and can be submitted in Word or Open Document Format.

Columns: We welcome user columns or viewpoints. These are 800 words in length and include no images other than the author’s photo. Content for a column should include an observation or viewpoint that is presented in a professional manner. These are not to be advertorial in nature, but instead provide insight and cause discussion or debate for others to consider and ponder.

Writing Style: Written content should attempt to inform readers in a context that they can understand. Articles should not be presented as marketing advertorial but, instead, should convey passion and interest in the topic and how it improves work processes, sustainability and quality of life. It is particularly important to cite references where work is derived from other sources. Contributors should avoid writing in dry technical terms – aim for fluid, insightful, helpful and interesting content.
