Contributor Article Guidelines

We believe that by creating an environment where readers can learn and consume objective and insightful information, both authors and readers will benefit.

The guidelines for the contributor articles that we publish are designed to build a high-quality publication that delivers to this promise.

100% Original to AI Time Journal

To guarantee the quality of the publication and create value for both the readers and the authors who apply to be involved, we publish only original content that adds value (no text copied from other sources or articles already published by the author).

As of January 2020, we do not publish articles that have already been published elsewhere.

We use Copyscape to detect non-original content.

Fact-checked

To build trust with the readers, make sure to support your claims in your articles with links and references to authoritative sources.

Educational, informative, entertaining content

The content should share knowledge and not be promotional or contain calls to action. We reserve the right to remove content which does not comply with these guidelines.

Non-promotional

We accept articles from contributors who are experts in AI, Data Science, and adjacent tech verticals (Big Data, IoT, AR/VR, etc.).

We do not accept articles from SEO marketers, freelance writers and content marketers whose profile does not clearly highlight an expertise in tech. The only thing that you should be interested in promoting is your profile as a tech writer and expert by creating value for the readers.

We reserve the right to remove any content (text, links, images, etc.) that we deem as promotional from the articles.

Images

To make your article stand out in the website and across social media previews, there must be at least one featured image in the article.

All the images used in the article must:

  1. Be relevant to the topic and help the readers visualize the point you are making.
  2. Have the proper license and attribution to avoid copyright violation.
  3. Be non-promotional: no company logos, links, call to action, etc.

What images to use:

  1. Pictures you took yourself, graphs you made, screenshots you took.
  2. Free photos from Pixabay or Unsplash (which are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and can therefore be used for free).
  3. Spend a few dollars for a photo from sites that release all licenses, e.g. Shuttershock, DepositPhotos, iStockphotos.

Make sure you have the right to use any image you include in your article and add an Image Credits section at the bottom of your article where you cite the source (including a link) of the image. Here is an example:

Reposting your article on other websites

If you want to republish your article on other websites after publishing on AITJ, make sure to help avoid duplicate content issues on search engines by:

  1. Waiting at least 14 days before republishing on other websites
  2. On the repost article, adding a text and link to the original article on AI Time Journal as follows:
This article was originally published on AI Time Journal

(Make sure to change the link in the text above from the AITJ website to the URL of your article on AITJ).

Reposting on Medium: if you repost the article on Medium or a Medium publication, please make sure to set the canonical link setting to the URL of the article on AI Time Journal.

We reserve the right to remove articles that are republished on other websites without complying with these guidelines.
