Celiac.com Submission Guidelines for Articles
Celiac.com welcomes writers’ queries. We are interested in articles that capture some facet of the gluten free lifestyle, the diagnosis and/or treatment of various forms of gluten induced illnesses, controversies related to this field, or new insights into it. Our editors believe that the best articles honor medical research, alternative medicine, and/or individual perspectives. We also embrace thoughtful dialogue and debate.
Here is what you should know about us if you want to make a pitch or submit a completed article:
- When you query, be sure to have done enough research to know for sure this story is a “go.” You can either make your pitch in less than 200 words or submit your completed article and take your chances on publication.
- If your submission provides commentary on medical insights or advances, we would appreciate inclusion of citations to source materials.
- If your submission challenges conventional medical paradigms or beliefs it is important to provide citations to source materials from the peer reviewed medical literature.
- Sources of all quotes and paraphrased comments should be cited.
- While we place no limits on the length of submissions, space limitations may dictate that lengthier articles be split and published over two issues.
- We like writing that is focused, fresh, smart, concise, accurate and jargon-free.
- We like stories derived from personal experiences, observations, scientific insights, or some combination thereof.
