The majority of content on TheCRO.com and in CRO magazine is written by CRO staff and paid editorial contributors. However, we do consider submissions from CRO members, practitioners, providers, academics, non-profit and non-governmental organizations, and communication firms that have practical experience or academic credentials in any area of corporate responsibility, from compliance to governance, CSR to SRI, sustainability/environmental issues to philanthropy, and communications to supply chain.
Please note: All submissions should be discussed with the editorial department prior to submission (e-mail email@example.com) and are subject to editorial review and final approval. Publication decisions are made independent of submitter’s membership in The CRO and/or advertising in or sponsorship of CRO publications, events or online offerings.
Types of Editorial Considered:
Columns (print and online)
Case Studies (online)
Expert Q&As (online and e-newsletters)
A new series on TheCRO.com. Each month, we highlight an expert in a particular field of corporate responsibility and take inquiries from readers. These would be narrowed down to 3-4 common questions, which our expert would then answer. The final column will be promoted on TheCRO.com homepage and in our biweekly e-newsletter. Interested "Experts" should contact the editorial department (firstname.lastname@example.org) with proposed areas of expertise, background and availability.
Opinion Pieces (print and online)
On occasion, we do take Op-Ed pieces from authors with a history and variety of experience in the field of corporate responsibility. If you are interested in submitting an op-ed piece, please contact Dennis Schaal (email@example.com) with your concept, background in the field and writing samples. Past examples:
