How to turn your content into suitable content?

Some basic tips:

  • Length: of your content is suitable. Keep it short! Approx 600-1000 words
  • Grammar and spelling: Keep in mind that the readers take your point more seriously once it’s professionally structured without any mistakes.
  • Structure: If you are not sure what a good article structure is, here’s an easy formula:
    Title: should invite the reader to your article.
    Lead: present the ‘Who What When Where Why and How’
  • Core: By reading the lead the reader should already know what it’s about. Try to rank the most important paragraphs since the top ones are most likely to be read. 
  • References: Make sure all your facts are backed up by links in the bottom with a brief description (EX: Link to journal article :www.journal.com/hereisthearticle).
  • Extra: If you like, you can find your own image to go with the article. Make sure you have checked the copyrights and that you are allowed to publish this. If you don’t send us one, our core team will look for a suitable image to go with your article.


Things to check:

  1. Plagiarism: Have you presented someone else’s content as your own? Make sure you reference and avoid plagiarism.
  2. Assessment: Are you still in the process of getting marked? This content might show up as self-plagiarism if you have NOT been marked yet.
  3. Respect: We value respect towards others on our website. So should your article.

Our core team will review your work and edit any grammar/structural errors. We will never change your angle or view. You will be contacted if we make substantial changes.  Your article will then be scheduled to be published according to the urgency of the article/ other content we might have planned.
