CURATION STANDARDS

To maintain a healthy and thriving ecosystem, we rely on editorial standards employed by our curation team who reviews every submission.  When evaluating what to publish, our priority is practical value.  We aim to equip our users with information and resources that help them become more efficient, more creative, more proactive, more courageous and more effective.

WHAT ASSET CAN I SHARE?

Any digital asset or work that can be digitized and shared online.

We simply ask that you either own or have the permission to share the assets you upload.

WHAT FORMAT CAN I UPLOAD?

Whether you are uploading software assisted assets or manually created, structure the asset in a format that is easy for the user to understand and use. Get in the mindset of a user and anticipate the format and features they will appreciate.

 

We require that all submissions be shared to us through a Dropbox / Google Drive link or similar cloud storage links to maintain an audit trail that benefits both parties.

WHAT CAN I DO TO IMPROVE MY SUBMISSION?

Check your submissions against the questions provided in our curation standards above. Additionally, take the time and thoughtful effort to describe the asset you are uploading accurately and comprehensively. We know that this is an added investment on your part but remember, the assets you sell at The Knowery allow you to earn continuously and indefinitely with just a one time investment. That makes it worth the extra time and effort.

WHAT CAN I DO IF MY SUBMISSION GETS REJECTED?

Work with us. Review the feedback provided by our curation team and apply recommended changes and edits. At The Knowery, no contribution is ever trivialized, we believe each asset shared has a purpose and a value to someone. The rejection is just a way of challenging you to improve on it so it can make a difference.
