Contribute an article

  • Articles may vary from 1000-4000 words, though we are not limited to that.
  • Articles may be original - or adapted from something you have written elsewhere.
  • Articles contributed to History & Genealogy will normally be put in the free content section of the Unlock the Past web site when the subsequent edition is published.
  • Alternatively you may submit an article directly for free access online.
  • Illustrations are helpful (and can be colour).
  • Contributing an article is a great way to gain wide exposure of your expertise and your organisation or business.
  • We do not normally pay for articles, but you will get full acknowledgement. In addition we offer contributing authors of general interest articles a quarter page ad valued at $240 for each article published (larger ads for multiple articles).
  • We will also consider a limited number of promotional articles, but ads will be at normal cost.
  • Register your interest by emailing alan@unlockthepast.com.au. We will make a final selection based on overall variety and balance of topics, and general suitability of the article proposed. The number of articles will be limited to approximately the same as for the 2011 edition.
