Claims Article Submission Guidelines

Claims Magazine welcomes the submission of bylined article ideas and, upon editorial approval of those ideas, the articles themselves.

A bylined story is one that expresses the knowledge and insights of the author(s). The purpose of such a story is to educate or update our readers on the basics or the latest trends as they apply to the insurance claim industry. We do not publish case histories.

Contributed bylined articles should be between 1,500 and 2,000 words in length, unless a different arrangement is approved by Claims editorial staff.

Such articles may not mention the name of the author's company or that company's products directly. In addition, articles may not be slanted toward a particular company's products. The author's company and location will be mentioned in a byline identification that appears with the article.

Deadlines are firm, unless an extension is granted. While publication dates will be assigned, articles may be held until later issues due to space considerations.

Generally, Claims follows Associated Press style guidelines.

Licensing Agreement

Claims requires that all contributing authors sign a licensing agreement that specifies, in part, that the article being written may not be published elsewhere until it has appeared in print in our publication. The agreement is signed before writing begins. The agreement gives the author full copyright and the right to republish elsewhere, but only after the article appears in Claims. Claims does not publish articles that have been published elsewhere.

Submission Procedures

Before submitting finished articles, it is recommended that you furnish a short abstract on the subject and scope of the proposed article(s). These should be sent via e-mail to cbramlet@sbmedia.com. The editor will respond with thoughts on the proposal. Finished articles should be in Word format and sent as an e-mail attachment to cbramlet@sbmedia.com. All images should be in jpeg format.
