  5. If possible, send a related picture for your piece used under the Creative Commons license. If you do not set a picture, we will pick one that we deem appropriate to go with your article. In most cases, editors find a picture that works.
  6. If you are citing any studies, surveys or news reports, be sure to include a relevant link.
  7. We do not accept previously published content. Google identifies such content as plagiarism and messes with the site stats. If you have a blog, please first publish your piece on the site and then after at least three weeks on your blog. We’re a new site and this helps with the site stats.

  10. We reserve the right to edit your content to make it more readable. An editor may make changes to the title and add introduction and sub-sections suitable to our format.
