There are two ways to submit an article.
1. The prefered method is to email the article to nadeem@"REMOVE"marketoracle.co.uk in word doc (remember to remove "REMOVE" from the email address).
2. Email us the url of a webpage where the article is published, and we will take care of the rest.
Email all queries to the editor nadeem@"REMOVE"marketoracle.co.uk. Please include Article for Submission in the subject field.
Also don't forget to include your short bio.
Only original on topic articles are accepted by The Market Oracle.
After viewing your article we may edit the article (rarely), and then publish.
Most submitted articles do get published (97%).
Usually if your article is not up within 48hours then highly likely it will not be published.
There are various reasons of why it may not be published which include -
a. Off topic
b. Too many recent articles of a similar type or following the same market.
c. Quality of content.
d. Article deemed to be an advert i.e. contains little or no actionable content.
e. Article deemed to be libellous
However we do appreciate your contribution and will do our best to include your article.
By ensuring that the work is original, and relevant to the topic being discussed, as well as matching the ethos of the site. That being an analysis or forecast of a market or investment strategy.
As a guide, look at the type of articles already published.
Where individual stocks are concerned, the market oracle is interested in strategy rather stock tips, so all stock tips of Small / Medium Cap stocks will be rejected. But if your article comprises an analysis of a major component of an index, i.e. Intel Then it will be considered for publication.
We like to keep our content varied, so try submitting a article under a topic that is not already heavily covered, i.e. if recent articles have been mostly about Gold, then we are less likely to publish another article about Gold immediatly.
You as the writer retain the copyright to the article, and are ineffect allowing Market Oracle to publish the article for an indefinite period of time at the sole discretion of Market Oracle.
We may also edit your article, though other than improving the title (as we have a great deal of experience in posting articles and know what is likely to get viewers interest than what is not), this is rarely done to the actualy body of the article text.
All submissions must be your original work, any articles found to be copies from somewhere else will be deleted without notice.
So please only submit your own original articles.
Usually if the article meets the sites guidelines, you can expect the article to be published well within 12 hours.
However, no promises can be given i.e. weekends, holidays or high work load may lead to a longer period.
Neither will articles postings be confirmed by email, however you can easily see posted articles on the main index page.
The Market Oracle is a high traffic FREE Daily service and therefore receives a substantial amount of targeted traffic that author’s services benefit from.
Additionally, being a 100% free service, we are not in competition with any paid services and therefore seek to promote articles purely on the basis of the quality of content and thereby provide article submitters with additional traffic via our gold and silver star ratings.
Authors should include one or two urls to your website and brief description of the services offered / bio about yourself.
There is no monetary recompense for published articles, as the Market Oracle is provided as a FREE service to the readership, and neither are there ANY plans to move towards a subscriptions service in the future.
We have a strict policy of deleting copied articles
Please send an email to editor@REMOVEmarketoracle.co.uk
a. The original article i.e. your website, or publication entry
b. The url to the article published on marketoracle.
Usually, we seek to resolve such matters within 24 hours of reciept of your request.

Authors, please make sure that articles are checked before submitting so as to prevent any time consuming editing requests.
Also note editing is limited to only within a few hours of the original article being posted to the site and must preserve the original thesis / conclusion.
Articles are not edited beyond 24 hours of posting, the only option available is for the article to be deleted (this does not mean that an amended article will be posted in its place).
Articles can include excerpts to articles written by others within reason -
1. Articles where more than 50% of the content are excerpts will not be posted or heavily edited to reduce the amount of excerpts.
2. That references to other articles should include links to the source. Where links are lacking then the excerpts may be deleted, or the article not posted.
The bottom-line is that longer articles that contain many excerpts are far less likely to be posted than much shorter but totally original content.
In terms of the rating system, excerpts do not count towards an articles rating.
