Follow these points to format your article before you submit it to Knowledge Tank.
- The article should have appropriate title relate to the content of the article
- Not more than 300-350 words under a sub-heading. Create as many sub-headings as you want.
- Every paragraph should have less than 150 words and it should not exceed this limit.
- Sentences should not be longer than 20 words.
- Try to use active voice instead of passive voice as much as possible while framing your sentences.
- Avoid use of abbreviations rather use their full forms unless it is not an important word.
- It also goes without saying you will not be using shorthands like ‘/’ for or ‘&’ for and or ‘@’ at the rate etc.
- Do not use Italic or Bold or Underline unnecessarily or to over emphasise a word or term. This habit wears down the readers’ retinas and their patience. In case you are using there should be some specific reason.
- Italics or Bold or Underline should be used in cases where you would want the reader to navigate easily through the article for abbreveations.
- Do not use Block Letters or the phrase or header in Capitals. Kindly do not use capitals to emphasise a word, phrase or term. Use sentence case and proper grammar for your articles. Capitals should be used only for nouns.
- Here’s an article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emphasis_(typography) that explains emphasis in typography.
- If your article has tables or graphs then do not copy them as an image from the source. Create a table and graph in your document using MS. Excel, so that it can be formatted properly while publishing.
- Cite the source of your tables and graphs.
- Mention the name of the author and co-author (if any) at the beginning of your article and below the title of your paper.
- Give full stop at the end of every reference in end list.
- Do not use first or second person pronouns such as I or We or you or your in KT articles (except for expert advice articles).
