Write for Linux Journal

We always are looking for contributed articles. Only by accepting articles from a variety of Linux users involved firsthand in the projects they write about can we do justice to the many areas in which people are applying Linux and the software that runs on it.

We mainly run tutorial articles for all levels of expertise. Someone who is an expert on Verilog may be starting out on a sound editing application, so not all introductory articles are for new users only. We always appreciate good introductions to new and useful software.

We also are looking for real world stories. If you are using Linux to do something unusual or if you are using Linux on a large scale, many people would like to read your story in Linux Journal. Our readers rely on Linux Journal to show them when Linux becomes a good choice for new kinds of projects. So, if you're the first person you know to do something on Linux, please let us know.

You do not have to be a professional writer to write for Linux Journal. If you have written informative Web pages or helped users succeed with their Linux projects by posting good answers to mailing lists, you have the basic writing skills needed to become a Linux Journal author.

Please read our author's guide, and send us e-mail if you have an idea for an article. Be sure the subject line contains descriptive words, such as "C compiler article", to help us when sorting through submissions.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale?

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
