News - Article Submission Guidelines
Guidelines For Submitting Feature Articles
The purpose of ClientSide
News feature articles is to examine current trends,
applications, technologies, and issues affecting
the Globalization, Internationalization and Localization
industry from a client-side perspective. Please
remember, all the work you submit will be appropriately
attributed (i.e. stories have bylines; photos have
credits), and will become the property of Client Side
News. Here are the requirements for submitting
If you would like to reserve a particular feature
topic, you must first submit an abstract to
be reviewed by the editorial staff. The abstract
can be in the form of one or two short paragraphs,
or a one-page outline. Whatever the form, your
abstract must include pertinent information
about your story. Ask yourself: What is the
topic/subject matter? Is my story of value the
buyers and decision makers on the client-side
of the Globalization, Internationalization and
Localization industry? What is the impact for
Lead Time: For features, we ask that abstracts
be sent AT LEAST one month prior to the publication
month. For example, if you are interested in
submitting articles for a November issue, then
abstracts should be received no later than October 1.
Approval: You will be notified once the abstract
is approved. Upon approval, the article is reserved
for your company/organization and is no longer
on the availability list. At this time you can
begin work on the story. The final copy of the
article and all pieces of accompanying artwork
are due approximately eight weeks before the
month of publication.
Editing/Placement: all materials that you submit
are subject to editing to fit our magazine's
editorial style. If there are any major changes
that may skew the focus of the article, you
may or may not have a chance to review our marks.
Though we may have accepted and edited the article,
it may be held for publication at a much later
date. This is due to space requirements or other
special reports based on our editorial calendar.
Materials: Major articles should be about 2,000
to 3,000 words in length. Keep in mind, this
is only a guideline; article lengths can vary
between or within issues. Each feature includes
about three to five elements of artwork, which
can include color photos, line drawings, diagrams,
tables, etc. Artwork can be submitted
in the following formats: TIFF,
EPS, Bitmap, JPEG, PDF.
Word about Style
Client Side News audience consists of globalization
industry professionals interested in business issues
related to client operations. To that extent, please
write in a clear, professional style; stay objectively
focused and avoid any language that can be perceived
as promotion for your company, organization, or
product. Try to mention your products only as part
of a general discussion of the technology it utilizes.
