Diabetes Health Submission Guidelines

Diabetes Health provides patients, educators and healthcare professionals with practical advice and the latest information on new methods, technologies and research related to diabetes.

Diabetes Health accepts solicited submissions from contributing writers for feature-length stories. Our feature stories run at a maximum of 1,500 words. Features should have at least three to five outside sources.

We also accept shorter opinion pieces, columns (500 words each) and letters to the editor.

We are not responsible for returning unsolicited content or photos.

All content should be balanced, informative, lively, timely, concise and easy to read for a lay audience.

Diabetes Health does not accept manuscripts that promote a product, philosophy or personal view. When discussing products or treatment techniques, you should include experiences of a person with diabetes. Never make sweeping generalizations that cannot be supported by published research or highly credible sources.

All manuscripts should be sent as a Word file. Do not fax or mail manuscripts. Do not copy and paste manuscript into the body of an email.

All manuscripts will be edited for style, length and substance.

Upon receiving a manuscript, we will either query you for additional information or, if the material is unacceptable, return the manuscript with rewrite instructions.

Payment varies with experience and is based on the final length as it appears in the magazine.

All submissions are “on spec” only.

We encourage writers to submit photographs or other art that will help illustrate the story.
