This is a help page in the Contributing New Content section.

Topic articles are encyclopedic style, 3rd person articles which make up the bulk of the IEEE Global History network's content. As the scope of the IEEE Global History Network includes the history of IEEE and its related fields, topic articles can widely vary in content. The articles can deal with biographies of individuals, histories of IEEE Organizational Units and functions, histories of certain technologies and the organizations which developed them. The IEEE Global History Network aims to collect all material within its scope regardless of notability, so do not feel discouraged from contributing if you have detailed knowledge about a very specific subject or invidiual. The only criteria beyond fitting within the technical scope of IEEE and its fields of interest are that the article must be historic in nature, either by presenting a history of some subject, or the subject in question being 25 years older or more.
