Do You Have an Idea for an Article

We are always interested in content for the magazine, however we do not do advertorials. What we do like is good technical articles written by practitioners for practitioners.

You as the author of course get your byline that is set aside for the author.

If this interests you, our articles are normally 2400 words minimum in length, plus boxouts, sidebars and pullquotes (these are explained in the commissioning document).

The process is quite simple:

  1. You send a short 100-150 word abstract about your article
  2. We review and set up the authors account for publishing with DFM
  3. We send you the documents and templates you need to get your article into the format DFM requires
  4. You write and submit the article by the due date for peer review and editing
  5. Any serious concerns are communicated back to you for you to respond
  6. The article goes forward to the designer
  7. The article is published
If you would like to proceed, please complete the form below and send along the abstract for the proposed article.

Tell us exactly what the subject matter is and why it is important to our readers. Don’t forget to let us know if you think it is aimed at the beginner or more suitable fot the major advanced digital investigator.

The eventual article length should be in the range from 2,400 to 5,000 words.

All manuscripts will be required to submitted electronically via email once a dialogue with the editorial team has started.
