Top BlogKDnuggets Top Blogs Reward program has resumed, with all published articles eligible, and the 8 most-viewed articles each month sharing $3,000 (USD), based on proportional number of page views.

We accept only a small fraction of all submissions, with preference given to most interesting, original, and technically sound articles of general interest, which have insightful takeaways ("nuggets"), supported by references and visually appealing images / charts / data visualizations.

See recent examples on our Opinions and Tutorials pages, along with our most popular content at Top Stories.

Please email relevant submissions to submissions and follow submission guidelines below.

Submission Guidelines

  • Put Article submission: your article title in the subject line
  • Send a link to your submitted article in Google Docs (strongly preferred), or Microsoft Word or HTML
  • A typical submitted article should be 300 to 1200 words (longer articles will be considered if especially interesting)
  • We suggest including 2-3 interesting images up to 800x500 pixels, though this is flexible depending on the needs of a particular article


For code, please wrap all pre-formatted code segments in <pre></pre> tags. Alternatively, use Github gists for code hosting, and include the gist URL in your submission where appropriate, and we can embed the code in your post.

Equations and Math

For equations, you can use a service for formatting and displaying LaTeX. It works by making an API call with the formatted LaTeX, which is then returned as an image. A call is wrapped in an tag, and looks like this:

<img alt="Equation" 

For more complex equations you can do screen capture and include those as images.

Required Inclusions

Along with the submissions, also include the following in your submission email:
  • A suggested summary (~2-3 lines, up to 200 characters including spaces)
  • 4-5 suggested tags (see current KDnuggets tags)
  • A brief 1-3 sentence author bio, including links to your preferred social media or web presences you would like included; we suggest Twitter, LinkedIn or personal webpage at minimum
  • We expect an opinion to be supported by facts, links, and references

Also note that a submitted article should not promote one particular product. Specifically, we do not accept guest articles on certifications tied to one company, but such articles can be considered as paid promotions. It is fine to mention one specific commercial product or service, but if you do, then you should also mention 2 or more similar products or services.

KDnuggets reserves the right to edit all submissions for length and to correct errors/typos.

We may modify the titles of selected articles, in consultation with authors, to improve their appeal to KDnuggets readers.
