Tick the box for the article category on the right side of the screen. Unless you are publishing a serialized book or an article for one of our foreign language editions, your article should fall under one of the four innovation levers:

  1. Enabling Factors
  2. Life Cycle Processes
  3. Organization & Culture
  4. Strategies

Picture

Save draft and Submit for Review

Click on the “Save Draft” button in the top right corner and press “Preview” to view the article. Once you have finished editing, press “Submit for Review.” If you need to return to edit your text at a later time, you will find it listed by the article name under POSTS.
