Next-Gen Infosec - Submission Guidelines

Content Guidelines:

Infosecurity’s Next-Gen Infosec spotlight section welcomes content pitches from the next generation of industry professionals. This includes students, graduates, post-graduates, or indeed people from other industries looking to join the profession.  If you would like to be considered, please send a short synopsis and proposed title for your article to Editor, Eleanor Dallaway -Eleanor.dallaway@reedexpo.co.uk 

The editorial team will then make a decision on whether or not to issue a commission. Please be patient, we receive many pitches every day. If your submission does get accepted, please be aware that, due to a high volume of submissions, it can take several days for articles to be published after receipt.  

Please use this opportunity to showcase your knowledge about the industry or a particular topic relevant to the industry. You may want to publish some research, you may want to write an opinion article on a topic that you are passionate about, you may wish to analyse a particular technology or method used by industry. 

  • Any submissions must be content exclusive to Infosecurity. We will not consider publishing non-exclusive content. After three months, you are free to publish on your own social media/blog, but please do include a link to the original publication on www.infosecurity-magazine.com 
  • Each piece of content should be 600-800 words. For research that is longer than this, we could look to commission a ‘series’ – 2-4 articles of approx. 600 words each, published a few days apart. 
  • Please also supply a 1-2 sentence summary of the article that incorporates the article key words and author’s name.
  • Deadline: On commission, the editor will give a deadline to work towards. 
  • Opinion/comment articles should have a clear thesis, and should examine topics/subjects relevant to information security professionals. They should not be product advertisements. Product advertisement articles, or “advertorials” will not be accepted.
  • We use American English. Please try to follow this.  
  • Our editorial team will edit content for house style, spelling and grammar. 
  • We will set up an author profile for you, so please send your full name, status and academic institution (ie: student, grad, postgrad, or current job title if in another industry), your TwitterTag and LinkedIn URL if you have them, and a headshot of yourself.
