Article Submission

This video tutorial walks through how to submit an article draft as a Partner or Member of IoT For All. If you have any questions, please contact your account manager or [email protected].

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Follow the step-by-step instructions to submit an article draft as a Partner or Member of IoT For All

All submissions have to match our content guidelines. They must be:

  • Educational, informative, or provide useful information or resources to the reader
  • Non-promotional
  • Focused on IoT or one of our adjacent tech verticals (AI/ML, Cloud, VR/AR, etc.)
  • Written in clear and easily understandable American English, formatted in Associated Press style, with minimal grammar and spelling errors
  • All images and data/research sources must have linked citations

If revisions are required, someone from the Editorial Team will reach out to you via direct message on Slack. Otherwise, if your article is good to go, you’ll receive a Slack notification with details on when your article will be published. If you have any specific questions or concerns, email [email protected] anytime.

Step 1

Log into your WordPress Account through the login portal.

Step 2

In the left sidebar, select Article → Add New on your dashboard.

If you’re already logged in, click this link.

Step 3

In the center content editor, add your Article Title and Article Body.

  • Check any grammatical or formatting errors in the body of your article. Articles should be in AP style.
    • Contract any “to be” words (e.g. it’s, she’s, etc.)
    • Spell out any percentage symbols (10 percent, not 10%)
    • Use WiFi, not Wi-Fi; cybersecurity, not cyber-security, and lowercase words like internet, cloud, and blockchain. Use IoT, not “the IoT” unless you’re spelling out the acronym (i.e. IoT and the Internet of Things)
  • Use consistent formatting.
    • For headers, start with H2 and move to H3 and H4 logically. All headers should be bold and capitalized.
    • Lists should be bulleted or numbered and should have consistent capitalization and punctuation.
    • Paragraphs and sentences should be short and easy to read.
    • All images should be center-aligned and should be credited.
    • All images should have alt-text that summarizes the image for screen readers. If an image doesn’t have a source or doesn’t contribute to the article, it will be deleted. You can add an alt-text by clicking on the image and using the “Alternate Text” field that will open in the right sidebar.

Step 4

Add or write an Excerpt. Your excerpt will appear on all of our content and library pages alongside your article, so make sure it’s compelling!

  • Excerpts should be no more than 141 characters and should be as descriptive as possible.

Step 5

Check the Article Authors.

  • The Article Author will be automatically populated when you create the draft, but you want to make sure it’s correct before submission.
  • If  you want to attribute both an author and a company as the authors, place the company first and the author second to ensure that they display correct only the page.
  • Please do not fill out the Guest Author Section and leave this blank.

Step 6

In the top right corner, click Save Draft, then Publish, and finally Submit for Review.

  • This will save your article draft to the website, but does not alert our editorial team that you’ve submitted a new piece of content.

Step 7

Fill out the Article Submission Form.

  • This notifies our team that a new piece of content is ready for review. If you don’t fill out this form, we won’t be able to access your draft or know that it’s in the queue!
  • When filling out the form, you’ll be asked for your Post ID number – this can be found in the URL of your draft. See the image on the right for details on where to find it.
