Submission Form

Our team will review your submission and, if accepted, optimize, beautify, & then publish. We will circulate across our social platforms (>40,000 followers). We do not require exclusivity at this time (we're pro-recycling!), but if the same article is published on your blog, please add our link there once published here. By submitting, you're vouching that you've written this in its entirety and both have permission, and allow us, to publish the work here.

Summarize your post in 1 sentence.

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.

Where our readers can find you. Can either be to your website or social media account, or wherever you want a reader to find you. Please use https:// in the front.

(pick what you feel best represents the genre your article fits in)

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.

Add the link if you're recycling from your own website, so we can check that you linked ours there, once published. This is for SEO purposes & we appreciate it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What can I submit ?

We consider publication of any 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’ articles show up right inside their public profile, for display. That’s why we call it a “portfolio”.

If your article “makes the cut”, it will also appear in our large content section, under the category in which it belongs.

Take a look at Dr. Corriel’s profile, for 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.
