supply chain management, transportation, warehousing, ERP,
optimization, purchasing, etc. To suggest a technical white
paper for possible listing, please verify that is pertinent
to software selection, warehousing, logistics, e-commerce,
order processing, replenishment demand, or purchasing.
What is the Review Process?
We will review to see if it
is educational and relates to supply chain topics that we
focus on. We look for three things - Is the white paper
(1) educational, (2) provides technical details to educate
sophisticated IT & logistics people, and (3) appropriate
language - well written, no abusive language, etc. If we
have received permission to place the white paper on our
website - then the new white paper is announced in the newsletter
and put on the white paper listing.
What SIZE of white paper
Size of the white paper is to
be a minimum of 1 full page, preferred is 2 to 20 pages.

knowledge" to benefit readers (Approximately 90% have
college background with either a Master's or Bachelor's
What FORMAT is preferred?
Format preferred is (1) PDF,
(2) Word document, or (3) HTML.
What is the COST of listing
the white paper?

from increased traffic to IDII Website and pass through
traffic to your URL.

date. We estimate a minimum of 3 to 5 years. Reviews are
done once a year to see if any white papers are obsolete
