The Lowdown on Writing an Article by Bissett, Gaby

Want to write a piece for the Financial Times opinion page? by Brooke Masters
Every day, we publish several articles by guest writers. Some are commissioned by us; others we select from proposals that come to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Publishing external voices is a key part of our interaction with our readers.
We particularly relish pieces that highlight unexpected places, explore new ideas and illuminate diverse points of view. We also want our opinion pieces to be punchy, readable articles that make strong arguments; and we have a soft spot for writers who demolish conventional wisdom or dissent from opinions we have already published.
If you would like to be part of this conversation, please get in touch. We receive dozens of proposals every day, but here are five tips on how to make yours rise to the top of the pile:
More than Just Wikipedia: Creating a Collaborative Research Library Using a Wiki by Muñoz, Caroline Lego
Increasingly, wiki technology is being used in education and business settings. Although most students are aware of Wikipedia, many do not understand that a wiki is a malleable platform that has a multitude of uses. Wiki technology is one of many social media tools that students need to not only become familiar with but also be able to effectively use. This paper advocates introducing students to wiki technology and implementing it in marketing courses. Specifically, principle of marketing students were given a short tutorial on wiki technology and required to contribute to the course wiki to create a collaborative research library. The collaborative research library was then used to assist students in writing an environmental scan paper on a product category. Assessment measures were taken at the beginning and end of the term. Recommendations for integrating wiki technology in a course are provided.
