Tips for getting published on Equity Scholar

• For U.S. market investors – Write about a stock, sector, ETF or theme that is actionable for U.S.-based investors.

• Fundamental, logical, and market-oriented – We do publish macro-economic, market actionable posts, but if your submission focuses mainly on politics, marketing, economic theory, or non-business related trends, it’s probably not for Equity Scholar.

• Disclosure – All articles must contain in the footer a disclosure statement letting the reader know if you hold any positions in the stocks mentioned. If you don’t have a position, please mention that as well.

• Uniqueness – If you are writing about well-covered issues, bring a new perspective that others may have missed.

• Brevity – We prefer submissions that are no longer than 1,000 words. Articles running 2,500 words and longer should be broken into two or more parts for publication.

• Grammatical – If your submission requires heavy copy editing, in all likelihood we won’t be able to publish it. • Be known Providing your real identity builds credibility. We do, however, publish material under a pseudonym, but we require full identity disclosure for our confidential files.  Please submit any author information you would like published along with the article.

• No penny stocks – We generally avoid articles on penny stocks due to concern over manipulation. Currently, however, some broadly-held mid- and large-cap stocks have traded below $1. Therefore, in some cases we will consider articles about sub-dollar stocks.

We strive to consistently select the best articles submitted for consideration. Above, we have outlined guidelines that hopefully illuminate some of the factors involved in our decision process.In the end, however, the selection of articles is highly discretionary, and can be impacted by many factors including: our editorial resources on a given day; the number of articles addressing similar themes; the timeliness of the topic; and a sense of how much a given article adds to the discussion. Due to the volume of submissions, we are unfortunately not able to publish every seemingly good article.
