How to Contribute to The Privacy Advisor


We welcome submissions from both members and non-members of the IAPP. We recommend that authors send proposed topics for contributions to editor of The Privacy Advisor, Angelique Carson, to ensure the topic would be of interest to our members.

In terms of publication guidelines, while there is some flexibility, we recommend 750-1,200 words as the ideal range.

In terms of deadlines, we generally accept stories on a “rolling” basis and aim to include in the next Advisor following receipt of the story. We often “pre-release” or “post-release” through our Daily Dashboard as well to share the content with a wider audience.

One item of note is that our format does not support footnotes, so we recommend authors include hyperlinks for any sources they would like to mention in the report.

We also publish headshot photos and short bios (two or three sentences) with contact e-mails or websites for our authors with each article.

To submit a topic proposal, article or to ask questions, please e-mail the editor at
