Editorial Guidelines

We welcome news releases; however, we do not guarantee coverage. Although we accept Op-Ed pieces and original stories — per guidelines below — we do not guarantee publication of any information sent to us.

HispanicBusiness is an all-digital publishing firm. We strongly encourage public relations staff and writers to familiarize themselves with our website: http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/.


News Releases

We're always interested in news releases about diversity hiring and promotions, marketing, philanthropy, and supplier development. Your news release should tell us who you are, what your company does, and how you can be contacted. You should provide a brief summary (not more than two pages) of what the news is about and how it is relevant to our audience.

Send news releases to editorial@hbinc.com. Type or paste the text directly into the body of the message; please do not send it as an attachment.

If you have a photo, send it with the press release. It should be in JPEG format, at least 3 by 5 inches.


Op-Ed Pieces

HispanicBusiness occasionally publishes Op-Ed pieces on topics regarding Hispanics in business, supplier development, diversity, politics, technology, health, education, nonprofits, entertainment, green energy, social media and the auto industry.

Pieces about hiring/promotion, marketing, philanthropy and supplier development are given precedence. Pieces designed solely to promote the interests of a single person or organization are not accepted.

If the Op-Ed piece is published, a short paragraph explaining your credentials, with a possible link to a website, will follow the piece, along with a disclaimer indicating that the opinions expressed are solely those of the author. Please don't insert this information elsewhere in the piece.

Op-Eds should be 250-400 words and must be exclusive to HispanicBusiness. They will be edited for clarity, brevity and style, and should follow the Associated Press stylebook.

Submit Op-Eds to editorial@hbinc.com, with the subject line "Op-Ed: (Title of Article)." Type or paste the text directly into the body of the message. Do not send it as an attachment. Include a daytime phone number where you can be reached.

If you have a photo (JPEG format, at least 3 by 5 inches) please send it for consideration.


Original Stories

HispanicBusiness publishes occasional original stories by freelance writers. They must be exclusive to HispanicBusiness. We strongly encourage you send a query in advance.

Email queries to editorial@hbinc.com, with the subject line "QUERY: (Subject of Article)."


Style Guidelines for Writers

Our style guide follows the Associated Press stylebook.

Use active voice and present tense. For example, write "she says" rather than "she said."

On first reference to a person, give his or her full name. On succeeding references, refer to the person by last name only.


How Long Does It Take?

We will contact you within two weeks if we are going to publish your article. If you have not heard from us by then, please assume that we will not be able to publish your article. Given the volume of submissions we receive, we regret that we are unable to call or email in the event an article has been rejected.
