Proven’s decision to switch from hard copy to e-magazine format was based on recommendations from our readers. We looked into projected trends within the industry and we realized that many of our peers are moving toward e-magazine format. We love that we are helping our planet and trying something recommended by our readers. The future of Proven will rely on what we hear from you…and will be based on what you want.
Proven Publications’ management team tossed around many options for the way ahead with Proven. The goal was to turn the print version into an e-magazine (and become more environmentally friendly). The team decided it was inevitable that it would be a hard transition regardless of how it was done. The transition has been difficult at times, but all in all the team is excited about the road ahead and believes that going green has been a great change for our resources, energy, and planet.

- Since Proven is an e-magazine, does that mean that as an author I will no longer get hard copies of my work to distribute among my colleagues and network?
- As an author, will I get paid if my article is selected to run in an issue?
- I have a great article I would like to submit, but it exceeds the length requirements. Should I still submit?
- Why would you not select an article?
- May I submit case studies and/or scientific research?
- Does Proven Publications require an agreement to be signed prior to publication?
Instead of authors getting 25 hard copies of the magazine for distribution, we will now provide a PDF (comprised of the issue cover and article) and 25 hard copies of the PDF that they will be able to use for distribution. We want authors to still share their work and also spread the word about Proven.
No. Currently Proven doesn't offer monetary compensation for contribution. Proven Publications does, however, provide free and discounted advertising opportunities if you contribute to our e-magazine.
