How to Get an Assignment

Potential authors must send queries or outlines before they begin writing. This helps focus articles on specific needs and avoids repetition and wasted effort.

Queries or outlines should summarize the main points of the article, as well as the evidence, potential sources and subtopics to be covered. A query might be a single paragraph summarizing your thesis. Queries may be submitted by clicking here.

Due to the number of queries received, magazine staff members are unable to respond to all queries that are rejected.

If your article idea is accepted, you will receive a letter or e-mail within two months asking if you are interested in receiving an assignment letter. Such letters instruct authors to continue research on a topic, provide resources, outline the desired article and instruct authors to prepare the manuscript. The assignment letter includes a copyright agreement and a firm deadline. An assignment letter does not guarantee that the completed manuscript will be accepted for publication.

HR Magazine editors also review unsolicited, completed manuscripts. These manuscripts may be accepted, rejected or tentatively accepted pending satisfactory alterations and rewrites. To submit a manuscript, click here.

Authors of completed manuscripts—or their representatives—will be notified about the status of their submissions.
