How to contribute to PharmaSource

Thank you for your interest in contributing to PharmaSource.

PharmaSource is the world’s first dedicated community for procurement and outsourcing executives in Pharma and Biotech. It is an exclusive private member’s community, where only approved buy-side members are accepted as members.

Our audience includes Outsourcing, Procurement and Supply Chain executives from international pharmaceutical companies and biotechs. Collectively, they control a budget in excess of $200 Billion USD, covering all major procurement categories.

Any articles published on PharmaSource will be promoted to our circa 15,000 email subscribers and via our social media channels.

Here are some contributor guidelines to engaging this valuable audience:


1. Non-promotional

All content submitted to the blog should be non-promotional in nature. The goal of the blog is to share new insights and best practices for others to learn from, not to promote specific products or services.

2. New insights into common challenges

We are looking for original insights and best practices that can help our readers overcome challenges in their role. This could include your own experience in tackling similar challenges and well-researched information that our readers would find valuable. 

3. Exclusivity

 Original Content is important to us. To avoid being penalised by Google, we can’t accept content that has been published somewhere else without significant updates.

4. Use real-life examples

Illustrate your points with real stories and examples. This will help your readers relate to your content and see how your insights can be applied in practice.

5. Visuals and Data

Visuals can help break up text and make your content more engaging and will be used to promote your article in email and social media.
Consider including images, infographics or videos to illustrate your points. 

We can help! For example, if you have a spreadsheet of data, we can help to make it interactive on the website, or create images to illustrate a concept such as the example below:

6. You retain IP ownership

By submitting content, you agree that we will have the right to publish your content on our website and use it for promotional purposes.

You will retain ownership of the intellectual property in your content, but you grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, distribute and display your content.

7. Wordcount

We suggest a wordcount of 1,000-1,500 words to explain the concept in sufficient depth, regularly broken up with sub-headings, quotes and stats.

By following these tips, we can work with you to create engaging content that will capture the attention of our community and provide them with valuable insights and best practices.
