At OpenMediaHub, we aim to maintain high journalistic standards to provide unique and quality articles and news to our readers. When writing for us, you agree to these terms and understand that if you don’t follow them, your article could be rejected by us. You will enter a contract with us that will demand your written agreement to this policy.
OpenMediaHub believes in transparency and honesty. Therefore, OpenMediaHub will correct mistakes promptly. Fullness and freshness of information represent two inescapable values in the online journalism world, and OpenMediaHub believes that accuracy is equally essential; we ensure expediency in making corrections when needed.
OpenMediaHub is dedicated to informing its readers when it has made a mistake (however big or small), conveying the error’s severity, and providing the correct information as soon as the mistake is brought to attention.
When an error is detected within an article, OpenMediaHub immediately works to find the correct information and clearly display the corrections wherever possible within the article. The corrections will include:
- The correct information.
- What was originally published that was incorrect.
- The date (and time, if available) when the change took place.
- The process to report errors from within articles is made easy to understand, by providing an email address and form to contact us at the beginning of each article.
Whenever errors cannot be amended within the body of an article’s content, corrections are displayed clearly in the last paragraph of the news content. Rather than remove completely the content containing a mistake, we provide clarification and admittance of our mistakes to preserve transparency.
OpenMediaHub commits to verifying all statistics and technical information by cross-checking with source documents and/or clearly stating the source of the information. This sometimes involves seeking the consultation of an external expert or the primary source of the information and providing them with any necessary information from the content in question for verification.
OpenMediaHub prides itself on the validity of its content, and therefore does whatever it can to be sure that the information presented by its writers is accurate. As a well-known global publication, Blasting News understands the importance of approaching claims with skepticism, thinking critically, and upholding accuracy in whatever way possible.
OpenMediaHub encourages its Blasters to keep in mind the following considerations when producing articles:
- Credit, acknowledge, and verify the source(s) of your information.
- Consider whether you know enough about the information to qualify as a trustable source.
- Think critically when addressing claims.
- Never make assumptions.
We trust our Blasters’ integrity and the accuracy of the information provided in our publication. But in the case that a mistake is made, we recognize the importance of admitting to mistakes and diligently working to provide correct information whenever mistakes are made. Consequently, we encourage our readers, contributors, and their sources to provide us with feedback on any of our content.
We expect all articles to be 100% original. They should pass Copyscape and other plagiarism checks. The writer should only send ‘never-published-before’ content for approval by our editors. You must focus on writing content that provides value to our readers. Articles that have been plagiarized or spun from a pre-published article will be rejected, and these type of activities may affect your contributor or author account.
Claims and Data
All claims and data should be duly examined before including in the article. No false claims or biased data will be entertained by the clients. We ensure that whatever data is getting published on our website is already available in the public domain and has been verified by relevant sources. The writers must link the data/statistics/claims to a relevant website where it was published previously.
Always seek to provide empirical evidence about the claims. You can include pictures, graphs, and screenshots to prove your claims. If no authority websites, experts back up your claim, you should avoid using it in your article.
All the articles you write should contain a value for our readers. Your article should have a definite objective which must be followed to provide value. We aim to provide articles that can present the latest news to our readers and help them understand the nuances of various businesses and technologies. All the articles should be completely unbiased and there should be no promotion/marketing of any currency, market or company whatsoever.
Promotions and Marketing
No article should contain any claims or information about a technology/business/person for marketing or promotional purposes. The title, subheadings and the content of your articles should always remain straight-forward and unbiased. You should not link any article that promotes a company/currency/person. We strongly discourage the use of promotional/marketing links in our articles.
Be mindful of the fact that our readers are not the general public but people who are genuinely interested in tech and business. Your articles should always contain valuable information for readers who already understand the technology and business sphere. Our aim is to provide them with the latest information and news about different technology and business. Therefore, understand our readers before writing an article for them.
Acceptance of the article
The acceptance of the article is solely dependent on the editorial board. Our editors can accept or reject without an explanation. When an article is accepted, we will intimidate our decision. Each decision by the board will be final and binding to all the writers.
While writing news for us, make sure that you are verifying it with all credible sources. Even though we have smaller timelines for publication of news on our platform, we find it essential to focus on the authenticity of each news post before publication. Make sure that empirical evidence is available for each of the news articles and data presented in the post.
We expect you to follow this editorial policy for creating high-quality content for our readers.
