Submitting Technical Content for SQLPASS.org
We accept technical content for publication on sqlpass.org in three forms: peer reviewed articles, video tips, and top ten lists. Occasionally we may solicit or accept other technical content, but these three are the primary focus. We encourage our members to contribute content, but remember that the standards are high – these will be read by your peers with an expectation of high quality.
SQL Server Standard
We consider this to be our highest quality content, written by a professional with 5+ years experience in the subject area. Members wishing to submit an abstract should meet the following criteria:
- Have 5 years professional experience as a developer, DBA, report writer, database developer, or some other technical or functional area
- Have been published formally as a writer (excludes blogs) on any of the SQL community sites (content will be reviewed as part of the abstract acceptance process) or have written a book that has gone through a technical/copy review process
- Be a member of the Professional Association of SQL Server Users and have a profile on PASSPort
If you meet the qualifications, please send a title and one paragraph abstract to Grant Fritchey. We will review your qualifications and the abstract and follow up with you in 1-2 weeks. If accepted, we will forward you the details on how to proceed. Authors are paid $500 for articles that are accepted and completed as scheduled.
Top 10 Lists
This is the easiest way to be published with PASS. Build a list of ten URLs that address an interesting technical niche. We look for original ideas for topics and prefer that they be focused on SQL Server or career topics. Review the lists we have and build one! Submit here for review.
Know how to do something and want to show your peers? Put together a 3-10 minute video that demonstrates it clearly and concisely. We recommend you submit a short abstract of what you have in mind and we’ll follow up to accept or suggest changes.
