Editorial Policy and Guidelines
Reasonable and constructive comments that contribute to debate, including critical comments, are welcome and will be published. However, all comments will be moderated before publication, which means all comments will be reviewed and, if deemed necessary, edited prior to their publication. Minor stylistic changes to enhance clarity and readability (correction of typos, spelling, grammar, etc.) will be made automatically. If more substantive changes are needed, the individuals submitting the comment(s) will be contacted to reach an agreement on the changes to be made.
Any comment that includes offensive or inappropriate language; is considered to be rude and offensive; is a personal attack on a contributor or on another individual submitting a comment/comments; could be considered defamatory; or otherwise brings The Global Fool into disrepute will not be published. Similarly, comments that are not relevant to the content of the post and/or are not timely will not be published.
We are practical and straightforward; we place a high value on getting to the point. When writing your comments, 1) use familiar and user-friendly language; 2) avoid highly-scientific and jargon-laden descriptions; 3) communicate in a friendly and conversational tone.
Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in any of the comments are the personal opinions of the individuals submitting the comment/s and do not necessarily reflect the views of The Global Fool.
Guest blog entries
We’re happy to consider quality guest blog entries from new and experienced authors – please read the editorial policy and guidelines provided below and send us a brief proposal outlining the content of your submission. We’ll let you know within a week whether or not we’re interested in it. If we’re interested, we’ll either request additional information and/or the full submission.
Our audience consists mostly of individuals contemplating, planning or undergoing international/global experiences, for fun, study and/or work-related purposes. Most of our readers do not have extensive knowledge on environmental issues, but have an interest in them and wish to find out more. Many of them hear for the first time about some specific environmental issues by reading The Global Fool.
We accept material that brings forth insight, wisdom and inspiration – inspiration for finding out more and for getting involved in global issues. Feel free to submit your own personal journey, the journey to develop your global mindset, to become a global citizen, and to develop an appreciation of environmental issues. Contributions detailing new global educational programs and perspectives on these programs are also encouraged. Every submission must include brief biographical information about the author. All submitted material must be original and unpublished.
Written work should be non-academic in nature, i.e., it should be presented in general magazine form. We are practical and straightforward; we place a high value on getting to the point. When writing your guest post entry, 1) use familiar and user-friendly language; 2) avoid highly-scientific and jargon-laden descriptions; 3) communicate in a friendly and conversational tone.
We do not publish sponsored content. However, we will consider (on a case-by-case basis) reviewing books, websites or other material. If interested, please send us a request detailing the material you wish to be considered for review. The review will be prepared and published by our editorial staff.
