Preparing Quality Content
- Reputable scholastic or authoritative websites, e.g. *.edu and *.gov websites
- Scientific journals, especially with high impact factor
- Trusted news agencies
To ensure the accuracy of the article, we send it to a member of the Advisory Board specializing on the topic. The Board Member will see to it that all the information is factual and up-to-date. After reviewing the article, the Reviewing Board Member returns the article with comments and recommendations to the Editor-in-Chief for any necessary revision.
The content of the article will be checked routinely for relevancy. To do this, the published article is reviewed and evaluated by our editorial team or a member of our Advisory Board. When it contains information that is outdated or inaccurate, it is updated expeditiously. The same procedure applies to reported content with inaccurate information.
(2) Fact-checking by the Advisory Board Member: the Board Member checks the article for accuracy. Evaluations and/or recommendations are given to the Editor-in-Chief.

References are important to bring substance to an article that presents scientific facts and studies.

The main features of a valid reference are as follows:权威,accuracy,accessibility,目的， 和货币。因此，有效的来源通常是来自权威和学术网站，例如* .gov和* .edu。最近从信誉良好的科学期刊上发表的论文和可信新闻机构的最新新闻稿也是良好的资源。突出作者编写的教科书也值得信赖，条件是它们在他们最近的版本中。与科学家的访谈和与专家的协商也可能被认为是可靠的信息来源。使用匿名来源尽可能令人沮丧。在主要内容之后，参考列表通常在APA引用样式中粘贴。
