ISQOLS Guest Blogger Guidelines:
ISQOLS welcomes guest bloggers to write on topics related to Quality-of-Life, Happiness, and Well-being research and studies.
All Blogs Must fit the following guidelines:
Authors must be ISQOLS active members.
Blogs must contain original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing.
Blogs must contain relevant, recent examples, original quotes, original graphics, and current data.
Blog reflects the writing style/tone of ISQOLS mission.
Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
No more than one link to your company’s or organization’s website in the body of the post.
Article word limit 1000.
Must address a topic related to Quality-of-Life, Happiness, Well-being studies and research.
Blogs can be summaries of longer published articles (such as an abstract form, etc.), however, the blog should contain some additional details or relevant discussion questions.
Graphic blogs that rely heavily on infographic or powerpoint created by the author should feature up-to-date data that's properly sourced.
Anything that may be construed as a link-building scheme.
Anything that's too promotional for your company or organization, nor press-releases for other events.
Anything that's offensive or inaccurate.
Anything that's overly critical of individuals or companies -- this is not a site to air grievances.
