1. Introduction

Setup21.com relies on a dedicated group of Authors to provide all papers. New papers are prominently displayed on the top of the home page for at least a day, after the first day they slowly make their way down the page, remaining on the home page for several weeks. This ensures that all papers will receive the maximum number of views. In addition, all papers are placed into their own category (the newest papers go at the top).

2. Types of papers we're most interested in

  • Security
  • Networking Administration
  • CIO & IT Management

Of course if you write a good paper on any topic dealing with IT we will publish it.

3. Format of the paper

The short answer is, it doesn't matter. The paper can be published in HTML format as well as in PDF or MS Word.

4. Papers are published for readers not authors or companies

This means we reserve the right to make any changes we see fit, if you do not allow us to retain editorial control of the published paper then we WILL NOT PUBLISH IT. On that note, we generally don't make any changes to papers submitted by the authors. So when do we make changes?

We've all been directed to download a white paper before on the internet, usually it takes you to a registration page so that the company who published the paper can contact you. The white papers are full of wordart, company logos, and usually have three pages describing the company and its products. These same companies are constantly submitting papers to us. Generaly there is some good information included in the paper but its hard to read because of all the other fluff. In this example we would remove the fluff and formatting and make sure you can read the paper without registering.

It is perfectly fine to include an "About the Author" portion at the bottom of the paper (not the top) you may include a link to your company or website. But if this is taken to far we will change it or not publish it.

5. Copyright permissions

For the legal version of this, you should read the author terms and conditions. Basically you grant us the ability to use your paper on a continual basis. We may publish your paper on other websites, newsletters, etc. The contribution is non-exclusive, meaning that you don't give us the copyright. You may publish it anywhere else you see fit without our knowledge or consent. If you ask us to remove the paper from our website then we will. Our goal is to provide papers to readers, nothing more. If you work for a company that has strict copyright control over a paper that you have written then we can work something out. We could easily add an extra disclaimer saying "Copyright Company, Inc Not SecurityDocs.com" at the bottom of the paper.

6. Your author page

Author Pages are designed to give readers more information about a particular author, including other papers written by the author. When you fill out the submission form you will be asked whether or not you want an author page. Author pages are completely optional, but if you do want one, we at least need to publish your name, short biography, and other paper you have on Setup32.com. We also encourage authors to submit pictures of themselves. Feel free to include your educational background, certifications, experience, favorite links, etc...

We provide writers with great publicity. When you write for the sites, we post a link to your bio, which includes your email, a description of your company and a link to your web page. Articles on the websites have a discussion link where you can participate in a conversation about your article.
