Perspective articles guidelines

Business Insurance accepts articles from experts in commercial insurance, risk management and employee benefits management for publication in its Perspectives section.

The section is intended to be a forum for readers' opinions and a forum for the discussion of technical topics that do not lend themselves to news stories.

Therefore, Perspectives articles should take a point of view, offer advice and/or explain a technical subject. They should not present case studies or promotional information.

To submit an article for the Perspectives section:

  • Send us a letter describing the topic you would like to address. Briefly describe what you want to say in the article.
  • You will receive from us an acceptance or a refusal of your article idea.
  • If accepted, we will respond with comments and request the full article, which generally should be no more than 800 words in length.
  • All articles are to be accompanied by a photograph of the author with a brief biography.
  • We will notify you of any questions we have about your article and any substantial editing we think is necessary.

All authors must assign the copyright on the article to Business Insurance for publication.

To submit a Perspectives article query or to request more information, send a note to or download these guidelines.
