For those interested in publishing with IPM, we've compiled a set of submission guidelines. These guidelines provide clarity on content expectations, the submission process, format, length, and other relevant details.

1. Topics 

At IPM, we recognise the diversity of the project management discipline and its constantly changing landscape. We warmly welcome submissions that cover a broad range of topics within this field. Whether you're diving into the details of agile methodologies, exploring stakeholder management, or shedding light on emerging trends and tools, we're eager to share your insights. 

Our platform is committed to presenting different perspectives and helping everyone understand all aspects of project management. Share your expertise, challenge usual ways, or introduce new ideas — we're here to amplify your voice. 

Please note that we do not permit product-focused or promotional material in our educational content. If you're interested in such promotions, please reach out to our marketing department by emailing us at  

2. Format, Length, and Specifications  

  • For articles and opinion pieces, we recommend they be at least 800 words. Writing exceeding 1500 words may be published in several parts depending on the context.  
  • Please provide a potential title (40-90 characters) and a brief bio of the author(s) limited to 60-80 words.  
  • If your submission has images, embed them within the file. Our design team might modify these graphics to align with IPM branding, but we will seek the author's final consent before making significant changes and posting them on our website. 
  • Please cite all information sources as references. 
  • Standard academic writing guidelines should be followed for all submissions.  
  • Authors should submit their work in electronic form, specifically as Microsoft Word files. We only accept submissions in English currently. 
  • Please read our Terms & Conditions before submitting your work. 

3. Editorial and Publication Decisions 

The editorial team at IPM has the authority to modify any submission for reasons of length, clarity, or readability. For major changes, authors will be consulted for their approval prior to publication, while minor edits will be made without seeking the author's consent. Submission does not guarantee publication. Upon IPM's decision to publish, contributors will be informed about the publication date, and upon release, authors will receive a direct link to their submission on the website.  

4. PDUs / CPDs 

Authors whose submissions are approved for publication will earn PDUs. However, please note that IPM will not issue any document proving your PDUs, as having your writing published on our website is acceptable evidence for certification bodies to claim your PDUs. You are automatically granted 1 PDU for every hour spent preparing or generating the published content.
