How to Become a PPI Author
Learn about the rewards of publishing with PPI.
We are always interested in adding new authors who combine the key attributes of
- technical credentials
- writing skills
- conscientiousness and accuracy
- work ethics
NEW... We are currently seeking authors for several new products.
It is not necessary to have published before to become a PPI author or other contributor. The best way to start is by writing problems for our Exam Cafe or contracting as a subject-matter expert. You may also want to consider teaming up with a colleague in a co-authorship. To learn more about our publishing process, please visit our Guidelines for Authors and Subject-Matter Experts page.
We are also interested in hearing from qualified professionals who want to submit their own proposals for new products. We regularly consider proposals from authors in a variety of fields, although the majority of our products are in the professional design, planning, construction, and production fields. Certification and licensing products are particularly solicited. Before submitting a proposal, please take these two steps.
STEP 1: Get Acquainted
Get familiar with our specifications and standards by writing problems for our Exam Cafe or contracting as a subject-matter expert. This also helps our editors gauge your ability to submit material that meets our criteria and greatly improves the likelihood that your proposal will be accepted.
STEP 2: Quick Read
Contact our Acquisitions Department to get a "quick read" on your idea. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Proposal Quick Read" in the subject line. If your idea fits with PPI's current publication plans, you will be invited to submit a formal proposal.
