Editors at EBR will work to ensure that articles to be published in the magazine say something new or different with unique perspectives. Articles should not somehow offer prescriptions to CEOs on what to do and what not to do or sometimes how to manage their enterprise.

EBR articles will be written by experts whose authority comes from careful analysis, study, and experience. Articles should be written in clear, simple and jargon-free language in about 1100 words. Articles should represent thought-provoking, often unforeseen ideas in the business and public sector areas. In case the word limits exceed 1100, prior consultation may be needed with editors.
