At People Pal, we believe in leadership by action. We try to arm our readers with ideas that help them become smarter, more creative, and more courageous in their work.

People Pal covers a wide range of topics, including strategy, leadership, organizational change, negotiations, operations, innovation, decision making, human resources, marketing, finance, work-life balance, and managing teams.

We specialise in sections for students and mid-level professionals, giving equal opportunities for all. We have seen over years that mid-level professionals are real implementers and we are sure this is a platform where they would get that extra mile. We are going to have youngest workforce in next decade or so. It is a platform where all young minds can sharpen their leadership skills, and interact with some of the stalwarts.

We publish articles of many lengths (some in both print and digital forms, and some in digital only), graphics, podcasts, videos, slide presentations, and just about any other media that might help us share an idea effectively.

Here are the five qualities we look for when evaluating what to publish:
 

  • Know-how: You don't have to be well known to be a contributor, but you must know a lot about the subject you're writing about. You should believe and have command over your subject, and passion should reflect from your words.
  • Data: It's not enough to know your subject deeply — you have to prove it to the reader. Referring to supporting research is one good way to do this; describing relevant examples is another. If you have interesting data, let us know.
  • Creativity: New ideas in leadership are not rare but very precious — and one of the primary reasons readers turn to People pal. If you're writing about a well-worn topic, we'll be looking for a unique argument or insight. Dreaming is great, but we love to cover implementable dreams.
  • Utility: People Pal readers come to us not only to stay on top of new developments in management thinking, but also to change the way they and their organizations actually do things.
    If you can explain your thinking, so that the reader understands how to apply it in a real situation, it will make it more powerful.
  • Writing that's persuasive and a pleasure to read: People Pal readers are smart and sceptical and busy. If you don't capture their interest right away, they will move on to something else. Some humour or different style can always attract a leader reader.


  • The Leadership articles should be approximately 400 words so that a reader can read it in 3-5 minutes maximum. The Student and Mid-Manager should be approximately 150 words. We are a paper, so we are very strict on word limits and content.

    General notes on process


    We receive many more submissions than we can publish, and we often have to say no to good proposals due to limitations of space and time or because they're not distinct enough from other pieces we have published.

    If we've passed on something you've submitted, please feel free to try again with another idea. If our editors have said no multiple times, it may mean your work isn't a good fit for our audience.

    Our editorial process is more thorough than many other publishers', and you may be asked to do multiple rounds of revisions. Contributors frequently tell us that they appreciate the extra care and attention their work receives.

    We also are trying to accommodate more and more good views, and that is the reason why we have moved to a portal. We wish to fly high, but the quality of your work has to be top notch.

    We retain final decision rights over headlines. Our editors have spent years learning which kinds of headlines give People Pal pieces the best chance of being read, found online, and shared both on social media and in offices around the world. If we rewrite your title, it's because we believe the revised version will help your idea reach the audience it deserves.

    We strive for authenticity in our articles. We don't publish pieces that have appeared elsewhere, that come across as promotional, or that do not include rigorous citations (though these may not appear in the finished piece). We ask our authors to disclose any financial relationships they have with companies cited in the proposed article. People pal typically holds copyright on the finished product, but authors continue to own the underlying ideas in their articles.

    They cannot publish the same material in any other form/press. They can share it in their network with the links available on the website.

    We try to evaluate ideas before we determine where and how to publish them. We will consider submissions that contain only a short pitch, and we can help determine whether the idea should become a magazine feature, digital article, podcast, graphic, video, or another format.

    All submissions to the web are made on spec. It's helpful if you can send the article on the topic which is suggested and discussed along with your brief introduction (Reference if any).

    • What is the central message of the article you propose to write?
    • What is important, useful, new, or counterintuitive about your idea?
    • Why do leaders need to know about it? How can your idea be applied today?
    • What is the source of your authority? On what previous work (either your own or others') does this idea build?
    • What academic, professional, or personal experience will you draw on?

    We want to understand how the logic of your argument will flow. Please illustrate your points with real-world examples or provide one extended, detailed example.
