Why write for Content ID?
- A unique format – Content ID offers a format that differs both from daily news reportage and the typical academic journal. Many of our writers are academic researchers who want to write about an aspect of their research in a digestible and immediate way. Few other media dedicated to Indonesia offer this service.
- Quality and reputation – Content ID has a long history and is well-respected. We strive to maintain high editorial standards. Every author works with a member of our team of editors, and all articles are submitted for review prior to publication.
- Immediacy – There is very little delay between submission of good quality articles and publication. If you have a burning issue to communicate, Content ID could be the place for you.
- Reach – Content ID has tens of thousands of unique visits per month. All articles on the site are available free of charge, as are our archives of back issues. Once an article is on our site, it is there for good.
Who can write for us?
We accept articles from a diverse range of people – academics, journalists, students, travelers, NGO activists and people who have an interest in Indonesia. What is important is that you have something to say about Indonesia.
We cannot pay you for your contribution – your reward is the pleasure it brings to our readers.
What types of contributions do we accept?
Content ID publishes original, informative, analytical and/or reflective short and medium length pieces on a wide range of resort, hotel, travel and destination.
Content ID is not an academic publication. This means we do not follow the normal conventions of academic writing (e.g. no footnotes or bibliographies) and we strive to avoid jargon and abstractions. However, many of the people who edit and write for us are academics and students and we strive to maintain high editorial standards.
Please note, you are responsible for guaranteeing:
- that your work is original
- that your material not been published elsewhere (you are free to reproduce it elsewhere as long as you acknowledge that it was first published in Inside Indonesia)
- that your work does not breach copyright or defame others.
How long can submissions be?
Articles are generally between 300 and 1600 words long. Occasionally longer articles (up to 3000 words) are published. These articles require special consideration on submission.
Please consult with our editorial team regarding the length of your proposed piece.
How do I submit an article?
