Who can become a guest author?

Anyone! If you ever had the goal to make the world a more user-friendly place and you write with great passion about it, then you’re the one I’m looking for. We want you to share your expertise with us.

All of our authors get paid. The amount of money depends on the length of the article and its quality. Before your articles go live, we make sure that both sides agree upon the publishing and payment conditions.

Article Requirements

Any article that is submitted must be:

  • Relevant: We accept articles about usability, user experience, user interface, conversion and related fields.
  • Original and unpublished.
  • Well researched and supported by facts. We rely on research to support our theories, so please link to relevant articles if you are making a statement that someone else has also made, or provide your own data if your team has learned something through practice.
  • Detailed. We are looking for very detailed articles with 1000 words and more.
  • Catchy and interesting to our readers.
  • Success stories, case studies, unique topics and fresh ideas that provoke intellectual discussion among a knowledgeable audience.

What not?

Although we do look into every single submission, the following articles will never be published:

  • Articles aren’t the place to showcase your cool new product. Articles are the place, however, to share the user-centered thinking behind your cool new product. If you would like to showcase your product, then please visit our section on “Sponsored Posts“.
  • If the article is purely promotional in nature, then this will not be published.
  • If the back-link is your only interest, your article will not be considered.
