Thank you for your interest in contributing to EDUCAUSE Review ("The Voice of the Higher Education Technology Community"). We welcome submissions from higher education IT professionals, academic/administrative staff and leaders, and others interested in the broad issues surrounding current developments and trends in information technology, how they may affect the college/university as an institution, and what they mean for higher education and society. Our contributed content also offers practical advice and guidance for managing and using information resources to advance higher education.

EDUCAUSE Review covers a range of topics. If you feel your content is suitable for a specific topic, you can select a topic channel from a list in the submission form. For examples of topics covered, please take some time to peruse previously published content.

We will read detailed outlines and abstracts. However, a full draft will be required for review before official acceptance. Final versions can be sent as traditional text, audio or video, screencasts, timelines, or any other creative form. Articles average approximately 1,000-3,500 words, but content determines length and we do not have restrictions. Supplemental multimedia is encouraged (though not required), including photos, charts and graphs, tables, interactive elements, audio recordings, videos, and screen captures.

Your submission must be original (not previously published) and should not have been simultaneously submitted elsewhere for publication. AI tools cannot be listed as author or co-author and should not be used to generate the majority of submitted content. Generated content must be fact-checked for accuracy, and any generated references should be checked to ensure that they have not been hallucinated. Authors should be able to assert that their submission contains no plagiarism (i.e., non-cited content), including text and images produced by AI tools. If AI tools are used to generate text, images/graphics, or data analysis, this use must be disclosed in accordance with EDUCAUSE Review citation guidelines.

Content should be informational, educational, and objective, with a not-too-casual tone. Straddling the line between journalistic and academic writing, the magazine does not publish peer-reviewed or overly scholarly (e.g., heavily footnoted) articles. For more information, please see the Style section below.

EDUCAUSE Review has always granted copyright of content to our contributors, though we do retain the right to publish the contributed content exclusively for two weeks. The magazine holds copyright only to the physical presentation of the work on the EDUCAUSE Review website. EDUCAUSE does not pay an honorarium or royalties for articles published in EDUCAUSE Review.

We request that you do not promote products or services. Avoid specific references to products or services except when necessary to make a key point. Alternatively, consider publishing in our sponsored column Industry Insights, which spotlights products and services for the broader EDUCAUSE community (for more information, contact [email protected]).

Submissions cannot be made on behalf of someone else. If you represent a PR firm, please ask your client to make a submission.

A publication decision on your proposal can take four to six weeks, depending on the current volume of submissions.

Material in EDUCAUSE Review lies in between academic and journalistic writing. Content should be informational, educational, and objective, with a not-too-casual tone and not-too-scholarly style. (We do not publish peer-reviewed articles.) For examples of tone and style, please browse through our previously published content.

In the text itself, EDUCAUSE Review uses hyperlinks only for website home and landing pages (e.g., linking the word "EDUCAUSE" to For direct quotes, facts that could be disputed, and statistics given in the text, please use complete endnote (rather than in-text) references with full sources: article author, title, publication details (see The Chicago Manual of Style). We ask that you restrict notes to those required (as specified above), combine them where possible, and use shortened subsequent citations. If available, include a hyperlink to the source in the note. Please be sure to cite original sources (not the source that quoted the original source).

When writing, please keep in mind that the EDUCAUSE Review audience is very broad, comprising not only IT staff and leaders but also other staff and institutional administrators, librarians, faculty, and corporate members. When using the pronouns "you" or "we" in your content, be sure to specify to whom the pronouns refer, since they could refer to any number of our readers.

Accompanying lists, tables, images, videos (YouTube preferred), or graphics (.jpg or .png) are optional but encouraged. If you provide a table, image, video, or graphic from another source, it must be attributed, and you must have permission to use it. Please send images, videos, and graphics as separate files, if possible. Images or graphics should be a minimum of 381 pixels wide; full-width images should be at least 706 pixels wide.
