A Member paper may be written by one or more OIX members. It should reflect a current issue or opportunity that is relevant to the purpose of OIX and is to further identity
A member(s) who wishes to write a paper and publish it through OIX, should initially produce a synopsis of the intended paper and present it to the OIX Executive Committee. The Executive Committee will provide comment as to whether it believes it is suitable and relevant and, if not, offer informed guidance to the member(s). It is the responsibility of the member(s) to source the resources and funds required.
On completion of the member paper, it must be submitted to the OIX Executive Committee for approval. If approval is withheld, the Executive Committee will provide appropriate assistance and guidance, should this be necessary, so that the member paper can be modified and approved at a later date. The OIX Executive Committee have the right to remove a white paper that has been published.
There is an OIX facilitation fee of £750 for member white papers – this fee enables OIX to facilitate:
- OIX Executive Committee review
- White paper review
- Website posting
- Promotion on social media
This fee is waived as a benefit for those members in good standing.
The discussion paper should be accompanied by a short abstract for publication on the OIX website. The member may be asked to arrange a presentation of the findings to an OIX workshop.
A non-member may not have this type of paper published through OIX.
