Editorial Review Process



I-Newswire.com follows 3 main principles while reviewing and accepting to publish content:

1. Editorial efforts and reviewing of the press release information must embrace diversity. (At any given time there is at least 3 editors reviewing the content submissions)
2. The submitted content must be high quality, factual and focused and adhere to the strictest editorial policies. (Our editors are trained to follow our strict guidelines. There are no exceptions to this rule)
3. The availability and openess of public scrutiny must be present to allow measures of quality improvement in the review process.

The I-Newswire.com editorial review process follows a Two-Tier review process.

Tier 1 - Press release submissions are reviewed by the Executive Editor who performs the initial read and review.
Tier 2 - If necessary the Executive Editor personally forwards the press release submission one of the staff editors. They continue reviewing the varying technical and/or factual matters of the submitted content.

After these steps have concluded the press release submission proceeds and if no other issues arise the release continues to live publication.

I-Newswire.com will work closely with authors regarding any revision or clarifications regarding their press releases.
