Submission Guidelines

DOM magazine is a knowledge-sharing and knowledge base solution that brings together professionals for in-depth discussions about high impact diversity and inclusion expertise. Chief diversity officers and other diversity professionals are the primary audience. The magazine seeks articles for publication that are informative, literature supported content .The content categories include best practice, applied research, diversity solutions, diversity competence, strategy, crossing borders, and leadership. We especially appreciate evidence based best practice articles. If you are uncertain or wish to submit an article that does not fit into these categories, please contact for more information.

How to Submit an Article

DOM magazine requires authoritative and how-to feature stories that range between 600 and 1,800 words in length. Articles reporting research data with practical applications and those covering evidence-based strategies and methods are given priority. Consultants need not worry about giving away their ideas. Our experience indicates that decision makers want to have a clear idea about how a consultant works before deciding who to contract. In addition, they recognize that you are the expert in what you deliver. They are looking for the best.

  • Best practice articles limit = 1000 words,
  • research data articles limit = 1,800 words
  • content area articles limit = 600 words.

Copy should be formatted in Microsoft Word or plain text, and via email (preferred) or via memory stick. (You are strongly encouraged to contact the publisher prior to writing an article.)
