Contribute

Stats and R welcomes guest posts that provides unique insight into statistics and R.

How can you contribute?

If you want to contribute and write for www.statsandr.com, please submit your article through this contribution form.

Once your guest post is received, I will review it and inform you about the decision (accepted, rejected, or accepted with minor changes).

Submission rules and guidelines

Before submitting your article, please bear in mind the following points:

  • To avoid any of us being penalized by Google for duplicate content, I only accept original blog posts that:
    • have not been published anywhere else in the past and
    • will never be published anywhere else in the future
  • This means that you may not republish your post on any other site, including yours (if you have one).
  • I only accept articles that are in line with this blog, i.e., articles about statistics and/or applications in R.
  • Even if your article is about one of these topics, it's not guaranteed that it will be published: quality of the post is the most important determining factor.
  • I personally read and check the content and formatting of your article to guarantee its correctness and so that it fits into this blog. I may edit the article with minor corrections, without changing the content. However, guest posts should be edited for spelling and grammar before they are submitted.
  • When appropriate, I may add internal links (i.e., links to other articles of this blog) to compliment your piece.
  • You are permitted to include a couple of links back to your site, within reason. These links should be included naturally within the writing and not come across as salesy.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you have the permission to use all content, images, and videos you include in your articles. I might therefore remove images where the source is not clearly cited to avoid copyright violations. Pixabay.com and Unsplash.com are two popular websites that offer images that can be used freely for any purpose.
  • You can edit and remove your article from the blog at any time, without any justification needed. Please note that I can also delete guest posts for any reason.
  • This blog is written in R and deployed thanks to the {blogdown} package. Therefore, it is much easier for me to publish articles written in R Markdown (.Rmd) or Markdown (.md). However, if your article is in another format, feel free to submit it as well.
  • If you are having an issue with the online form, do not hesitate to contact me.
  • At the moment, there is no financial retribution for writing a guest post.

After publishing

In addition to be published on this blog, all articles that are accepted will be published on Medium via the Towards Data Science publication. Moreover, it will also be published on R Weekly and, if it is related to R, on R-Bloggers as well.

Once your post is published, I encourage you to share it with your social media following as you like. Bear in mind that the more popular the guest post is, the more referral traffic your website will receive.

You are also more than welcome and encouraged to respond to any comments that the guest post receives.

Thanks in advance for your interest! Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
