The following are guidelines that we ask all contributors to follow when putting together their article(s): 

  • Opinions and viewpoints should be presented in a manner in which the reader will be able to understand them as such. There should be a clear distinction between personal opinion and verifiable facts. 
  • Information presented as factual should be independently verifiable. Contributors should not engage in plagiarism or the fabrication of people, events, and quotations. 
  • Articles should not be self promoting nor promote individuals, companies, products or services in a manner in which profit is to be gained. 
  • Sources and references should be credited. 
  • Articles are subject to editing for content and grammatical purposes. Editing should not change the intent of the author nor add material without permission from the author. 
  • Articles should be submitted to CPHR Alberta within the specified timeline. 
  • Authors may be asked to make minor revisions to their article for publishing purposes only (i.e., spacing issue). If this occurs, revisions will require a quick turnaround due to publishing timelines. 
  • Authors are asked to provide a headline – text at the top of the article that captures the essence of their article. 
  • Articles should consist of between 1500 - 2000 words, however the word count can be adjusted with the authorization of the editor depending on the article topic or content. If you are including a graphic, the specs should be minimum 300 dpi. 
  • Published articles are eligible for CPD points the first time the piece is published. 

Please provide a brief endnote to be displayed at the end of your article, which includes the following: 

  • Person’s name, title, place of employment 
  • Business and CPHR Alberta credentials, if applicable 
  • Email address, phone number or both for readership contact.
