Contributor Guidelines

We welcome submissions from specialist contributors with a unique perspective on the finance topics we cover at Savings.com.au.

Savings.com.au publishes contributor articles through its website and promotes them selectively through its social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter. Savings.com.au also promotes select articles through its e-newsletters.

Contributions must adhere to editorial guidelines for objective, non-commercial writing. Submission of a contribution is no guarantee of publication.

Content guidelines

  • Content must be unique and must not have been published elsewhere. It must also be informative, helpful and offer new insights on finance topics of interest (see next section).
  • All statements of fact must be accompanied with credible references.
  • There should be no promotion of a product or service.
  • Sub-headings must be descriptive and include keywords so that readers can skim the article and still have an idea of what it’s about.
  • Article length should be 600 words minimum.
