The Review Process

The Review Process is an essential tool in our quest for quality journalism based on the latest research and science in the field. A review team is comprised of three different experts in health, wellness, corporate culture or writing, who provide the blueprint for revision to bring the highest quality opinions and individual industry leading voices to our readers. The anonymous review process (both authors and reviewers’ identities are masked) seeks to answer the following questions (among others): Is it industry leading? Is it well written and well researched? Does it ahere to or enhance our goals (i.e. quality journalism)? Does it bring something new to the debate?

Only those articles deemed to reach these high standards are published.
