CONTRIBUTE

Chief Learning Officer offers various opportunities to contribute content focused on learning and development. To submit editorial content for consideration, email the editors.
 
FEATURES
 
Features run in the print edition of the magazine and are based on the editorial calendar. Feature submissions that include product information, vendor quotes or any marketing/advertising information associated with a vendor will NOT be considered for publication. In addition, features must not argue for a general L&D approach or solution if the author of the article works for a company that provides such a solution. Features should be 2,000 words and must be submitted in a Word document. The article must include a title, byline* and bio for the author.
 
GUEST EDITORIALS
 
Guest editorials are opinion-based articles that run in our “In Conclusion” column in the print edition of the magazine. These editorials explore and provide commentary on a theme or issue within learning and development. Guest editorial submissions that include product information, vendor quotes or any marketing/advertising information associated with a vendor will NOT be considered for publication in Chief Learning Officer magazine. In addition, guest editorials must not argue for a general L&D approach or solution if the author of the article works for a company that provides such a solution. Guest editorials should be 750 words and must be submitted in a Word document. The article must include a title, byline* and bio for the author.
 
PROFILES AND CASE STUDIES
 
Profiles take an up-close look at an individual learning leader’s life and career in L&D. Case studies explore a particular learning challenge faced by an organization and how it approached and solved the issue. Profiles and case studies are written by CLO staff. However, if you know a learning leader who has had great success in their role, overcome unusual challenges in L&D, or followed an interesting career path, please email the editors to suggest the person as a profile subject. Similarly, if your organization has approached and solved a particular learning challenge and you think it would make an interesting case study, we would love to hear from you.
 
WEB-ONLY FEATURES
 
Web-only features run online only at www.CLOmedia.com. These features can be on any topic and can run any length; however, we suggest keeping them under 2,000 words. Due to limited publication space within the print version of Chief Learning Officer magazine, most articles submitted to CLO will run as web-only features. Web-only feature submissions that include product information, vendor quotes or any marketing/advertising information associated with a vendor will NOT be considered for publication at www.CLOmedia.com. In addition, web-only features must not argue for a general L&D approach or solution if the author of the article works for a company that provides such a solution. Web-only features must be submitted in a Word document. The article must include a title, byline* and bio for the author.
 
*AUTHOR AGREEMENTS
 
Once an article has been selected to run in Chief Learning Officer magazine and/or on www.CLOmedia.com, the author will be asked to sign an author’s agreement. Among other legalities, this contract verifies that the article selected for publication has not been published previously and that it will not be published again in the future. In addition, the contract gives Chief Learning Officer exclusive rights and editorial control over the article. If your article has been previously published, if you plan to publish it in the future, or if you are not willing to sign the article’s rights over to Chief Learning Officer magazine, we will NOT be able to publish your article.
