Submit Whitepapers, Blogs, Articles or Sponsored Content:


MESA 'Point of View' (MESA PoV) Content:

"MESA Point of View" is a label for content created and/or edited by MESA Working Groups which is considered consistent and complementary to the documentation produced by MESA Working Groups.

 


MESA Member 'Point of View' Submitted Content:

All content submitted by members will be labeled by default

"Member Point of View" - content that has been submitted to MESA but has not gone through a peer review process before being submitted and may not represent the consensus point of view from the MESA organization contained in content produced by MESA Working Groups.


This content will be reviewed by the Content Advisory Board and assigned to a working group. An editorial footnote or appendix from MESA will be added if appropriate to clarify or expand on the MESA position on the topic. The appended subarticle will be labeled "MESA PoV" and authored by the respective MESA Working Group.



Please submit Working Group Content and Member Point of View submissions to Brandy Richardson at brandy@mesa.org.  

Or, if you'd like to submit paid sponsored content such as case studies, whitepapers, videos, inforgraphics, etc. please enter them into MESA's Smart Story Awards where they will be added to MESA's Resource Library and promoted throughout the year.
