 All submissions must be original and will be reviewed by a panel of experts before publishing.

Mission:

Corp Security International’s blog aims to provide its readership with the latest industry trends and solutions regarding security strategies, management techniques, and new technologies. Any prospective author should keep these goals in mind when developing story ideas.

Audience:

Corp Security International blog readers represent Fortune 500 companies from every industry globally.

 Readers include security professionals, business continuity, military, and law enforcement professionals from junior to senior-level executives who know the fundamentals and are looking for new and improved articles.

Articles should be detailed enough to interest specialists in the particular industry segment discussed, but an author should define terms that security professionals in other industries would not generally know.

 

Lengths and Deadlines

 The article should range from 750 to 2,000 words. 

 Every Monday before 6 PM IST

Images/Visual Aids:

Using charts, photos, or graphics that visually represent your data is a quick way to ensure your readers understand your material. Dry material will take time to read. 

 The author should supply any supplemental materials as a reference for any visual or informational presentation. Tables, charts, or diagrams should be simple and concise. 

 If you’ve created a chart, please send the original file and mention the program you used, or if a graph is copied from another source, be sure to cite that source completely.  

 If a work is copyrighted, you must take permission from the copyright holder to use it.

Final Draft

Email your final draft to info@corpsecurity.org as an attached file in Word format.

 You can include a short biographical sketch of the author and any co-authors with the manuscript. 

 Each bio should consist of the name, title, company, and any Corp Security posts each author holds.

On the cover page, mention the author’s name, email address, and phone number who should receive all correspondence about the submission.

 

Review

When a manuscript is received, the manuscript will go through an internal review stage which takes a week or two. 

 Corp Security Editors team will often reach out to the author via Email/WhatsApp if they need clarifications or further details. 

 The author will get a tentative publication date if the manuscript is accepted.

 A manuscript that usually declined is due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • It is usually about a company advertisement promoting a manufacturer’s product or service. 
  • It is too short and has too few details to be instructive. 
  • The information is redundant, and it simply repeats obvious facts 
  • It has too much information—and little substance. 
  • It lacks clarity. 
  • It discusses an event or topic of only local or regional interest.
  • It discusses a subject recently covered by the blog.

 

 Editing

Each manuscript will often go through the editing process to match blog style, clarify points, improve readability, conform to space limitations, and completely add a new headline.

 During the editing process, an editor may call to ask if there are any updates or clarify points. 

 

 Copyrights

Corp Security team will mention the author’s name and title to recognize their work. By submitting the content, the author is agreed that they are transferring the copyright of content to Corp Security International and will not use the same content in other blogs/magazines. The authors can share the published article can share their work with colleagues and employers or on social media channels. 

 

Compensation

All submissions are voluntary, and Corp Security does not pay its authors for articles published in the blog. Regular authors will be issued Corp Security International Writer/Author Badge. 

 

 Guidelines:

  • Write about 750 to 2,000 words in a blog post. 
  • Develop story ideas from personal experiences and expertise.
  • Outline thoughts to help organize ideas to be placed in a logical order.
  • Consider new trends and solutions. Provide specific details.
  • Use charts, graphs, and photos. Make sure they all identify themselves.
  • Include your name, email address, phone, and address on the cover page.
  • Place footnotes at the end of the article as a separate page.
  • Do not use columns, page numbers, or headers.
  • Avoid using bibliographies or glossaries.
  • A magazine article should lead the reader from one idea to the next in an easy-to-understand way.
  • When making a point, base it on facts and examples. This will make reading more enjoyable, but it will also increase the article’s credibility.
  • Avoid long sentences, jargon, obscure references, and tangential information.
  • Use bullets and lists sparingly to highlight important points. An outline full of bullets or numbers is nothing more than an outline.
