Instructions to authors

Upon registering you become entitled to be an author and post your public policy analyses. The author can be an individual or an institution.

Posted materials are not subject to peer-review. Responsibility for the content and quality of the analysis rests with the Author who has posted it on the site.

Anyone posting at least three publications in a given field becomes the author- editor for the relevant area of public policy (publication category.

When the Author submits his/her material for publication, the algorithm that is part of the site ensures that this publication reaches sufficient number of Author-editors for verification.

Verification serves only to prevent possible misuse of space available to the professional community as a result of sending inappropriate materials, and to ensure the well-intentioned use of the platform.

Registered users also have the opportunity to evaluate each posted publication they read by assessing how much it has benefited them. The summary result of the existing reviews/readings and ratings for each individual publication is also visible to the registered users.
