What is the process for publishing an article?

Last Updated: Feb 09, 2016 08:27AM PST

Submitting your article

​When you first submit your article it will be in the “Submitted” status. Your article will then be reviewed by the volunteer Editors at Experts Exchange for review and feedback. Editors may take up to three business days to review your article.

Once your article is submitted, it will be available publicly through your profile page. You can share your article and begin to receive points for views and helpful votes, but it will not be promoted to the community until it is “Accepted”.
