||Your article will be rejected if the topic is not notable, is not referenced properly, or violates copyright.
- Do not copy-paste or closely paraphrase material from sources. Rather summarize what the source says in your own words.
- The topic of an article must already be covered in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. These include academic journals, books, newspapers, magazines, and websites with a reputation for fact-checking. Social media, press releases or corporate/professional profiles do not qualify.
- Independent sources (see above) are generally acceptable and should be used before other sources.
- Non-independent sources (like company websites or press releases) can be used to verify basic facts only.
- Blogs, social media, and tabloid journalism are generally not acceptable.
- To create a reference, use
<ref></ref> as follows
Bizco was founded in 1942.<ref>https://www.nytimes.com/bizco</ref>
