Content Guidelines

Article Length and Types:

News Articles
: 600-800 words focusing on current events, updates, and innovations in
the tech industry.
Research Articles: 1200-1500 words providing in-depth analysis, trends, implications,
and forecasts.

Citation Requirements: If writers use any content that is not originally theirs, they must
properly cite the source. Use a consistent citation method for all external sources, whether
online or print.

Grammatical Accuracy: Articles must be grammatically proofread. Editorial staff must ensure
the content is clear, accurate, and well-articulated.

Prohibition of AI Content: Articles must be created without the use of AI writing tools. Content
must be generated by human writers to ensure authenticity and integrity.

Plagiarism Policy: The plagiarism acceptance limit is set at 15%. Articles must be original, with
clear citations and references for any borrowed content. Use plagiarism detection software to
ensure compliance.

Publication Timeline and Content Rights

Standard Publication Timeline: Once an article is submitted, the editorial process—including
review, revisions, and final approval—will typically take up to 7 days. This timeline ensures
thorough vetting for accuracy, compliance, and quality.

Rights Post-Submission: If an article is not published within 7 days of submission, the writer
retains the right to submit the content to other platforms. However, if significant editorial
resources have been committed to revising the article, mutual agreement on publication rights
should be sought.

Notification of Status: Writers will be informed of their article’s status—accepted, in revision, or
rejected—within 5 days of submission. This communication ensures transparency and allows
writers to plan their submissions to other platforms appropriately.

Legal Guidelines

Copyright Compliance: Ensure all content, including text, images, and videos, is either original or properly licensed. Verify rights before publication to avoid copyright infringement.

Privacy and Data Protection: Adhere to relevant data protection laws (e.g., GDPR, CCPA) when collecting and managing personal information. Secure data storage and obtain consent before data collection.

Defamation and Libel: Content should be thoroughly reviewed to prevent potentially defamatory statements. Fact-checking is mandatory to avoid false claims about individuals or companies.

Advertising Laws Compliance: Clearly distinguish editorial content from advertising. Label sponsored content and advertisements transparently.

Ethical Guidelines

Accuracy and Accountability: Commit to accurate and factual reporting. Corrections should be made promptly and transparently when errors are identified.

Fairness and Impartiality: Provide balanced reporting and a range of perspectives on controversial issues. Disclose any potential conflicts of interest.

Respect for Sources and Subjects: Maintain the confidentiality of sources requiring anonymity. Treat all subjects in news stories with respect and sensitivity.

Avoiding Plagiarism: All content must be original or properly attributed. Writers are required to credit all sources and inspirations adequately.
