Want to submit an article?

Defence IQ is currently accepting unsolicited articles. If selected for publication, your article will be seen by an expanding network of professionals and featured in our newsletters which go out to an extensive database of defence industry leaders.

  • Articles are usually 500-2,000 words. There is no set requirement for tone; however we are not looking for articles that directly promote the author's products or services. Please read through some of the published articles to get an idea of the types of pieces we publish. Your work must be your own.
  • Try to avoid complex formatting in the article. Charts, graphs, and photos should be submitted as separate documents.
  • Ideas on how to effectively handle the "soft side" of process improvement/change — leadership, creating teams, engaging people, sustaining change, performance management, linking projects to strategy etc.
  • Observations of trends happening within the process improvement community
  • When submitting an article, please include a brief bio and a high resolution photo.

Please submit articles electronically to andrew.elwell@iqpc.co.uk.

If you would like to mail your entry, send it to:

Andrew Elwell, Editor
Defence IQ

Victoria
London SW1V 1JX

Due to the volume of articles we receive, we cannot return articles. Please keep a copy of your article for your records. Defence IQ reserves the right to make editorial changes it deems necessary. Defence IQ does not pay its authors for content, though we are happy to promote your name, your brand, your consultancy, etc.

If an article is chosen for publication Defence IQ will own the rights for the piece. Submission does not guarantee publication.

We look forward to hearing from you
