start somewhere, and CADdigest.com is an ideal place for the

I'm a published author. Why would I want to to submit my
article to TEAM or CADdigest.com?
Being published on CADdigest.com
is a great way to increase your profile. Your article will
be seen by more people than if it was published almost
anywhere else, You will get full credit as its author. Your
bio will be linked along with the article. This can lead to
more business for you or your company. Your article will be
well publicized, promoted in our newsletter and on Twitter.
If CADdigest.com publishes my article, can I still put it
on my blog?
Yes. In fact, we encourage you to post it on your blog. Do
keep us posted on where and when it is published as may have
to let Google know if our publication is second to yours. We would
prefer that you do not share it with other publications,
print or online. Most publications have similar rules.

can submit an editorial, a short tip, a long tutorial, a
product review, a white paper, success story, etc. We ask

What are my chances of getting published on
If your article has value and interest for
the CAD professional, you have a very good chance of getting
published. Unlike print publications, we are not limited by
number of pages. However, note that the final
decision on what to publish rests with our editors.
What are your author guidelines?
Please submit your
article either as a MS Word document or in HTML. Do not use
PDF files or Mac-specific formats. Graphics can be saved in
TIFF or PNG format. See full Author Guidelines. We probably
would not consider very short articles such as quick tips or
bug reports/fixes. A very long article may get split into
Will I get get paid for my article?
Yes. We pay for articles we commission and
publish. The amount can be found in Author Guidelines. The amount
listed depends on its
value to the reader, the amount of work involved in writing
it, and other factors. For examples, a really well done
in-depth comparison review of multiple CAD products would be
a lot of work and we would try to get you give you the
maximum amount. A transcript of an interview, on the other
hand, may take much less work and so, the compensation would
be less. In short, don't expect to get rich but we hope to be able
to give authors some money for their time and expertise.
Do I get to keep the review products?
This varies by
product. A lot of software you review you can keep, but some
may be time limited and expire after some time, say 60 days.
Small hardware (like input devices) may be given to the
reviewer as a perk but most hardware is expensive and must
be returned to vendor after a reasonable time.
Do I have to disclose compensation or review products I
The FTC recommends full disclosure of free products,
paid reviews, and any other compensation as in FEDERAL TRADE
COMMISSION 16 CFR Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of
Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising. TenLinks, Inc. fully supports such policy.
