No outgoing links please, unless it's to a page on our site. We'll link your name & link to your site in the bio underneath.

If this is for the anonymous section, write "anonymous".

This will typically go under the author's name, where warranted. Make it short and sweet.

We like to tag you, when possible (not all share options tag). Write out like this, for example: "@drcorriel".

So we can email you if your piece is published.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What can I submit ?

We consider publication of any original health- and healthcare-related content, with the aim of helping spread the word on info that stimulates meaningful thinking or discussion. Take a look at our topics, in our CONTENT section.

Does it have to be on a certain topic ?

No. Anything meaningful/exciting/fresh works, and will be appropriately fitted into one of our various topics (article types include educational, informative, entertaining, advice, narratives, and more). We circulate everything accepted for live publication (see below).

What's the ideal word count?

Ideally, between 500-1200 words.

Can I submit if I'm not a health expert?

Absolutely.

If you want to submit your advice, in a niche you’re an expert in, we’ll consider your submission. You’ll have a good chance of being accepted if your piece is strictly informative, interesting, or entertaining, and not if it overtly markets your services. Every piece published gives credit to the author, with their website linked at the end.

I'm not a writer. Can I still submit?

Of course. Health experts aren’t necessarily experts in writing. The world is rapidly evolving, and health experts are realizing that they benefit from being seen, and heard, online. We help.

How long will it take to hear back?

Typically, we have a turnaround of a few days for your piece to be accepted, edited and published. But please give it up to 1 week. We do typically publish the piece first, and then let you know that it’s up. So feel free to check the “Latest” category regularly.

What happens to my article if it's accepted/published?

If accepted, your article will be published in our MAGAZINE section, here.

The SoMeDocs team will edit, optimize, and beautify your piece, so it fits in well with the rest of our standout content.

Members can, at this point in time, submit the articles and blog posts on their own websites, for consideration.

Members’ articles, once published, also show up inside their public profile, for public display (other than in the magazine).

Take a look at Dr. Corriel’s profile, as an example.

We ask that no hyperlinks be used in SoMeDocs articles. It usually comes off as “spammy” & readers often get turned off when it’s done. If you simply share your advice, opinions, or expertise, readers will follow you using your chosen website link. There may be times when hyperlinks are absolutely necessary (such as when necessary studies are quotes), and we weigh those on a case by case basis.

Pulmonologist Ni-Cheng Liang, MD, recounts her vivid experiences in Code Blues in response to Damar Hamlin’s cardiac arrest, and calls upon the need for strong infrastructure to provide time, space, and safety for healthcare professionals to process and prioritize mental health.
