  • Articles should be written in a professional tone.
    The target audiences of the website are business owners, entrepreneurs, CEOs, and C-suite levels of different businesses who want to learn more about outsourcing, so formality is critical in writing.
  • Articles should be of good great quality.
    • Be educational and informative, backed with extensive research if possible
    • Be consistent in tone, written in standard English, and with proper grammar and punctuation

    • Since this should be an educational article, visuals should be minimal, relevant, and appealing to the readers. We don’t recommend using stock photos or images without cited sources. Instead, contributors may use screenshots or go to Canva or Unsplash for free photos to use.
    • Note that we do not accept heavily AI-generated submissions.
  • Submissions must be original and should not be published on any other online platform
    Outsource Accelerator values the copyright and intellectual property of other websites and institutions and prefers fresh content to post. Articles from another website and plagiarized content will not be accepted, as well as topics already covered on the website.
  • Articles should be submitted in recommended formats.
    Contributors may submit the article in .doc format or via Google Docs link. When submitting via Google Docs, kindly make sure that the “Allow editing” permission is enabled.
  • We reserve the right to edit and modify the articles.
    If the submitted article doesn’t follow our guidelines, we have the right to reject the submission and inform the contributor about it. OA also reserves the right to modify submissions to better fit the website’s guidelines.
  • Estimated time.
    Kindly allow us around two to three weeks to process the articles. We will notify the contributors within the given timeframe. However, due to the volume of submissions that we receive daily, we will only reach out to successful submissions.
Source Partner contributed content supported*

Our OA Source Partners can submit previously published (repurposed) articles to help populate the article section on their company page. For these re-purposed articles, we add the original article as a canonical link to avoid being flagged for plagiarism.
