Articles should be written according to the description below and the writer's guidelines (below) to be considered for publication on the ICCI website.
The purpose of the ICCI published articles is to further public perception of ICCI and its certificate holders as the leaders in the field of career services. The target demographic is comprised of career service providers (not limited to ICCI certificants) as well as recipients of career services, who will probably make use of the types of services offered by our members. Our readers want serious, in-depth information about career services and how to engage a professional about furthering their own career.
Articles may deal with any facet of career services, including help with building, growing, and advancing the profession (sales and marketing, management, pricing, formats, profit centers, internet and technology resources and techniques, pricing your services, ideas for getting new clients, ways for professionals to develop profitable new services, effective business/workplace strategies, and much more).
Article Length: 1,200 to 1,500 words.
Format: All submissions to be sent as a Word file (".doc" or".docx") or as an Email "Paste-in."
Style: The style of the publication is information and conversational. References should be kept to a minimum and technical terms should be explained in ordinary language. The subject matter is more technical than that found in most newsstand publications, but less technical than industry professional research publications.
Citation: When quoting a source, the source's title and professional affiliation at first mention. When citing research, the source of the research should be provided. For example, "Researchers at the University of Colorado" or "Dr. Joe Smith, Head Physician of the Chicago Health Institute."
Articles must be original and not be published elsewhere, unless otherwise approved by the ICCI Article Review Committee. Each article must contain information that the reader can benefit from. Primary sources such as published studies and interviews with experts are recommended as the basis of research for all articles. Any information gleaned from secondary sources should be fact-checked by the writer prior to submission of the article. We ask that writers include bibliographical information on any publications cited and contact information for the people they interview for each article (including a phone number and address and whenever possible a fax number and/or email address). We request that all interviews be recorded in written summary or by audio recording, and advise that writers keep those tapes for at least one year after the date of publication.
ICCI reserves the right, in its sole discretion, not to publish any article submitted by you and to terminate this agreement to publish your article at any time upon written notice to you.
Editing, if requested, author agrees to provide ICCI with sources and research materials used in preparing the article, including notes, transcripts, and tapes. ICCI reserves the right to edit and/or rewrite for style, clarity, length, and adherence to format. When an article is ready for publication, a FINAL copy will be provided as a courtesy to ensure that all copy is accurate.
