Writing articles for Paged Out!

In 5 simple steps!

If you still have any questions after reading this please check out our FAQ and feel free to contact us at articles@pagedout.institute.

Step 1: Read about Writing Articles

On the Writing Articles page we gathered topic examples, technical requirements, details about the process and writing tips. It's somewhat of a long read, but reading it will make the whole writing/submission process smoother!

Step 2: Write (or draw) the article

This is the most important step! Write the text you have in mind (or draw the cheatsheet/diagram/image/drawing/etc) and set it in the layout you have in mind (Wait, what? The author has to do the layout? That's... unusual.).

Read the article again. And perhaps share it with a friend for proof reading.

Note: If you would prefer to have someone from the Paged Out! Institute to look at the article early (e.g. before you spend time on the layout, or even to just discuss the topic you have in mind), feel free to contact us at any time.

Step 3: Select a license for your article

To publish the article we require a license (don't worry, we want *you* to keep the ownership of the article).

There are a couple of possibilities here:

  1. You can use a selected variant of the Paged Out! Standard Author's Agreement.
  2. You can use a variant of everyone's favorite CC license (please note that we do need a "for commercial use" variant - see why).
  3. If you really don't care, you can always go with CC0 or "Do What The F*ck You Want To Public License" :).
  4. If neither of the above options works for you, feel free to propose another license - in this case please contact us early to discuss the details.

Note: The first option allows the author to (if the author wishes so) share magazine's profit (if any) - as mentioned in several places: this is a not-for-profit project, but we will take steps for it to be self-sustainable (more information). In all honesty these will probably be really small sums, but still we wanted authors to have this option.

Step 4: Submit your article

When everything is ready, please send the article (in the required form) and information on which license (and in which variant) you've selected to articles@pagedout.institute.

After receiving the article we'll get back to you (hopefully in a couple of days tops) and assign a reviewer/editor to work with you.

Step 5: Work with the reviewer

Work with the assigned reviewer to polish up the article.

Reviewers are volunteers that work with authors to make sure that the article meets the desired bar, and that no typos are left uncorrected.

Once your article gets the final approval, it's done! Your article is ready and will be published in the upcoming issue of our magazine.
