PLC Programming Handbooks
Contribute to PLCdev and Make Money
What We’re Looking For
The objectives of PLCdev are to provide practical instruction and help for anybody involved with PLCs from the maintenance staff to the PLC programmer. You don’t necessarily have to be a “writer” to contribute. If it has anything to do with any PLC and the devices connected to it then we are interested.
Examples of what you can submit may include:
We are looking to go beyond the typical general articles you see in automation magazines. Articles should be in the range of 200~1500 words. We pay more for solid practical examples (available for download) and plenty of screenshots (max 500px wide). The style of writing should be, if possible, light hearted and entertaining. You know how boring PLC documentation can be so let’s break the mold.
What You Get
PLCdev is a fast growing site read by automation professionals worldwide. Your submission is great publicity for you or your company. If desired, each submission can have an author byline, a short bio and a link.
You can earn money for unique content. Be very careful as articles written on your employer’s time are legally their property. We cannot accept internal company documents without permission.
Payment varies widely depending on the quality of the submission, length, examples, screenshots and usefulness. You can expect it to be anywhere from $20 to $50 (Canadian dollars). If your article is accepted for publication on our site we’ll pay you by check or Paypal within 15 days.
We are only buying rights to edit and include your material in PLCdev.com for as long as PLCdev.com exists. You retain all other rights which means you can put your PLCdev.com contributions in a book, magazine article, or even another web site. There is no contract involved. By submitting, you agree that PLCdev can edit the content of your submission to follow our style. We also reserve the right to reject any submissions for publication.
