I have submitted an article about 10 times to “thefreelibrary.com”. I go to my account and find it has been disapproved. The article is about LED signs and seems to meet all of the editorial guidelines but it gets disapproved over an over. I get no explanation regarding what is wrong with my submission, which is a bit baffling. I have two links back to my site. The editorial guidelines same I am permitted 4 self-serving links. I have changed the links from the article to the author bio. I have tried removing the author bio. I have changed the title, removed the summary. I see other articles written with a similar format and they have been approved. I just don't get it. I can't think of any thing else to do. There is no place to contact anyone at thefreelibrary.com Can anyone offer me any advice on what I am doing wrong?

Don't get disappointed. Have you heard the story of Robert Bruce of Scotland and the spider? Never leave trying till you succeed.

You can show your proposal/synopsis to someone in your fraternity who can guide you to improve the article. You may be using the correct format, but the contents or the presentation may not be to the mark. I do not know what the actual reasons are, but you should try to get it reviewed by some eminent person.

Why not ask them? There's a feedback link at the bottom of the page.


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

The administrators/moderators could just as well post the relevant content of the e-mails somewhere before everyone asks for an e-mail. Thank you guys very much indeed in advance.

With maybe the exception of the unasked there just isn't such thing available as a dumb question - Z4us
