WhiteBoard is aimed towards policymakers, business enterprises, young professionals, international partners, researchers and concerned political leaders
- WhiteBoard is needed to promote evidence-based, logical and incisive discussion, as well as constructive debate.
- Quality of writeups need to be more elaborate and in-depth than OpEd articles but less than an academic paper or research report.
- Fun and engaging writeups are sought (ref: Economist, Project Syndicate or WEF style). Short, simple, easily readable sentences are sought. Avoid passive voice.
- An international audience should be able to read. It should also have the rigor to influence policies.
- Editorial team reserve the right to emend title of the writeup.
- Contributions should be 1500-2000 words in length.
- A title (article headline) of not more than eight words should be provided.
- Submitted write-ups are preferred to be exclusive for WhiteBoard.
- No contribution that has been published elsewhere will be accepted unless expressly invited or arranged for by the Editor.
- All write-ups are subject to a WhiteBoard editorial policy. The Editor reserves the right to make appropriate changes related to correctness of grammar, syntax and spelling, and to ensure conformity with the magazine’s style.
- Contributors are requested to read and adhere to the style guide for contributors, an electronic copy of which can be downloaded.
- The Contributors should understand that the decision of the Editor regarding publication will be final.
- All write-ups should be submitted electronically, in Microsoft Word. Write-ups must be submitted in English.
- Each contributor should provide a 2-5 liner bio, a profile photo or headshot (not passport photo) of 400 x 400 pixels (high resolution), and personal twitter hand (or other social media profile).
- Bio syntax should be: [(The name should be without any honorific) Current position and institution. Description of profession. Noteworthy past endearments and experiences. Any relevant experience aligned with the writeup. Highest or relevant educational background].
