Getting started: In order to begin submitting news articles to be posted on our site, you must first register for an account on our website. After you register, you will receive an email after your account has been given permission to create posts. Once you’re logged into our site, you’ll be able to create new posts by clicking the “new post” button that appears. Initially, the posts you submit will need to be approved by editors before they appear publicly on our website; we will try to check for new posts once every 24 hours. If you have any questions or need additional help, don’t hesitate to contact with us.
Submission guidelines: We would like to develop a community of users on our website to help aggregate high-quality articles and video about freedom of information and whistle-blower issues. Please help us aggregate news around freedom of information, digital rights, censorship, press freedom law, accountability, new media, scientific journalism, and whistle-blower issues. We are also interested in aggregating announcements for events such as panel discussions or lectures, as well as posting links to video after the event has finished. Please avoid posting opinion pieces unless they’re exceptionally interesting (e.g., articles written by famous whistle-blowers); when in doubt, come talk to us about it.
Post style: When creating a post to an article, try to make the post title as descriptive as possible. Please do not paste the full text of articles into posts, but instead pick brief highlights that give a reader a sense of whether it might be interesting to read the full work. At the bottom of each post, please include a link to the source article. Please also specify the relevant categories (e.g. whistle-blower issues, freedom of information and censorship) when creating a new post. When in doubt, add your post to the “latest news” category if it doesn’t fall into one of the other categories. Have a look at this example post to get a sense of how to style your posts.
