Format your article before you submit it to Knowledge Tank

By Indra Giri on March 17, 2017

Follow these points to format your article before you submit it to Knowledge Tank.

  • The article should have an appropriate title.
  • 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 the use of abbreviations, rather use their full forms.
  • It also goes without saying that 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 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 abbreviations.
  • 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 cases and proper grammar for your articles. Capitals should be used only for nouns.
  • Here’s an article: that explains emphasis in typography.
  • If your article has tables or graphs, 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 adequately formatted 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 a full stop at the end of every reference in the end list.
  • Do not use first or second-person pronouns such as I or We or you or you are in KT articles (except for expert advice articles).
