Editorial Standard

At MobileBurn.com, our editorial standards guide every word and article published here. Clarity, accuracy, and integrity underpin our mission to make mobile technology accessible and helpful for everyone.

Core Principles

  • Accuracy and Fairness: Each article is carefully checked for facts and presented fairly. We strive to provide accurate, unbiased information that empowers readers to make well-informed decisions. Reviews, guides, and opinion pieces undergo thorough scrutiny to maintain fairness in representing all sides of a topic.
  • Transparency and Accountability: Transparency matters. We clearly disclose affiliations, partnerships, and corrections. If we make a mistake, it will be acknowledged and corrected promptly. Every piece of sponsored content is clearly labeled to differentiate it from editorial articles.
  • Independence and Integrity: Editorial independence is maintained to prevent external influences from shaping our content. Reviews and opinions reflect only the writer’s honest assessments. We never allow external partnerships, advertisers, or sponsors to influence our editorial decisions.
  • Inclusivity and Diversity: Mobile technology impacts everyone. Our content reflects diverse perspectives, experiences, and communities. We aim to provide resources and viewpoints that resonate with a broad audience while highlighting the challenges and opportunities unique to various demographic groups.

Content Creation Process

  • Research and Fact-Checking: Comprehensive research using authoritative sources supports each article. Writers verify facts with multiple sources to ensure accuracy. We cite reputable studies, trusted news outlets, and official statements wherever possible. Fact-checking is a crucial step that ensures readers receive information they can trust.
  • Writing Guidelines: Articles follow a consistent tone and style guide to make them clear and accessible. Structure and formatting help readers navigate information easily. Our writing aims to simplify complex technical topics, avoiding jargon and adopting a conversational, spartan tone. Content is structured to enhance readability through subheadings, bullet points, and visuals.
  • Review and Editing: Every article undergoes a multi-level review process involving editing and proofreading. Editors ensure consistency in tone, verify facts, and refine the overall flow of the content. Proofreading eliminates grammatical errors and enhances clarity.
  • Publication Approval: The editorial team gives final approval before publishing. The Editor-in-Chief or a senior editor reviews the article to ensure it aligns with our editorial standards.

Content Types and Guidelines

  • News Articles: Keep readers informed with timely and relevant news. Coverage is objective and neutral, focusing on facts rather than opinions. News articles provide concise, accurate summaries of events, product launches, or industry developments.
  • Reviews and Comparisons: Honest reviews and comparisons require thorough testing and a fair scoring system. Each device or app is evaluated against consistent criteria, ensuring reliable comparisons. Our scoring system reflects performance, usability, features, and value for money.
  • Guides and Tutorials: Guides offer practical advice through clear, step-by-step instructions. Tutorials include visuals to enhance understanding. Topics cover everything from setting up a new device to advanced networking tips. Guides are regularly updated to reflect the latest features and software changes.
  • Opinion Pieces and Analysis: Clearly distinguish opinion pieces from factual reporting. Thoughtful analysis is supported by sound reasoning and evidence. Opinion articles explore the “why” behind trends and offer unique perspectives on emerging technologies.
  • Sponsored Content: Sponsored articles are clearly labeled to maintain transparency. Editorial independence is preserved regardless of sponsorship. Sponsored content aligns with our editorial standards and provides valuable insights without compromising integrity.

Corrections and Updates

  • Correction Policy: Corrections are made promptly if factual errors arise. Updates appear at the top or bottom of the affected article. We include a timestamp indicating when corrections were made and what information was updated.
  • Updates and Revisions: Published content is periodically updated or revised when relevant changes occur. Articles covering quickly evolving topics, like mobile software, are reviewed regularly to ensure accuracy.

Ethical Guidelines

  • Conflict of Interest: Writers disclose potential conflicts before writing or reviewing any product. Personal connections, past employment, and financial interests must be declared.
  • Plagiarism and Attribution: Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Proper attribution of sources is required. Writers give credit where it’s due, ensuring original ideas and phrases are acknowledged.
  • Affiliate Links and Monetization: Affiliate links or sponsored content are disclosed upfront. Affiliate partnerships are carefully vetted to maintain integrity, and sponsored content is clearly distinguished from editorial pieces.

Contributor Expectations

  • Code of Conduct: Contributors are expected to act professionally and respectfully. Harassment, discrimination, or unethical behavior will not be tolerated.
  • Submission Guidelines: Submitted articles should meet quality standards for tone, clarity, and relevance. Contributors must follow the editorial guidelines, and all submissions are reviewed by the editorial team.
  • Editorial Feedback: Constructive feedback is offered to contributors to help improve their work. Editors guide writers on tone, accuracy, and overall quality to maintain consistency across the platform.
