Overall, you can write about anything affecting China markets, usually related to events, companies, industries, or the macro economy in China. The type of content you can write about also depends on the type of format you choose to write in. There are two types of formats you can write in: 1) Event Notes, 2) Contributed Notes.
1. Event Notes: The content here is concise, and event-driven. Event notes analyze the latest market-moving events related to China and are made up of two parts: a summary and an analysis. Event notes have very specific standards for content and formatting.
2. Contributed Notes: These are long-form articles, also called “Open Format” notes. You can write content related to China’s companies, industries/sectors and the macro economy and there is no specific format to follow.
- Company notes are reports and analyses about Chinese companies, such as Alibaba, or foreign firms’ operations in mainland China, such as Apple's China business.
- Sector notes are news and insights on various industries, such as technology, healthcare, energy, etc.
- Macro notes are analyses about China’s macro landscape, including updates on GDP, CPI and other economic indicators, or over-arching economic policies like the Belt and Road (BaR) initiative and deleveraging campaigns.
