- is libellous or misleading
- contains copyrighted material
- is not of a high professional standard
After articles are submitted they are reviewed promptly by the editorial team. If your article is rejected you will be mailed with our rationale. We are happy to engage in debate and discuss with you changes that may allow your article to appear on the site.
