Our Editorial Calendar will remain the 4-quarter system focused on the categories listed below. We feel this is working in general and we encourage companies to contact us as early as possible to plan editorial features and advertising campaigns around key announcements such as new software releases, introductions, updates and event news. Bear in mind this is only a “framework”; we will still publish feature items outside the quarterly focus topics, to the extend it rounds-out our editorial coverage and meets the needs of our corporate sponsors (advertisers).

Helpful Notes

Generally speaking, we start to plan our main features for any particular quarter approximately one to two quarters prior to it. However, that is the ideal and often times schedules slip or new items come up that we fit into a calendar focus. For best results please consider these helpful notes:

  • Contact us early for software product reviews (at least 2-4 months prior to publication date)
  • Contact us early also for big events, major announcements, et cetera
  • Contact us one month early for executive interviews

For broad editorial and coordinated advertising-planning, we encourage you to contact us any time of the year to discuss your needs. The same goes for company-based media (press) events. If you would like us to cover your media needs at an event that we don’t have on our Editorial Calendar, please contact us at [email protected]
