Over the course of several months, we’ve posted nearly 30 articles on our blog. We take extraordinary pride in what we publish because of the time and effort we take to research the topics. Have you noticed some of our sources?
Accurate and Reliable
For the most part, we only quote from websites that end in .gov, .edu, or .org. Why? Sites that end in .gov are the property of the government. For example, you’ll notice that the US Food and Drug Administration’s website is https://www.fda.gov/home
On the other hand, sites that end in .edu are reputable in nature and the property of educational institutions. A great example of this is a journal published by Harvard Medical School whose link is http://cdn.content.health.harvard.edu/media/files/SCR0314.pdf
The .pdf ending is how we know it’s a file meant for reading. However, you’ll notice the professional cited examples within the report.
Thirdly, sites that end in .org are the property of specific organizations. For example, the National Eczema Society is a UK-based charity that provides information on the skin condition eczema. Their website is http://eczema.org/ But, you’ll notice a few things about this site that we take seriously. There are few professional examples cited.
What’s more, the society’s site does not have a secure lock in the link. It doesn’t begin with https, instead, it lacks the s for security. Therefore, a site like this highlights the fickleness of .org sites. This is a site we would prefer not to quote from.
How Much Time?
How much time does it take us to write and research a topic before we post? Most articles take about a month of intense concentration before posting. However, some articles could take as little as a week or as much as a year! Why?
Sometimes there isn’t enough accurate and reliable information available about a specific topic. In that case, we will write about what we have information on and wait for further studies to become available.
Why So Much Effort
We are committed to providing accurate and reliable information on our website. Admittedly, sometimes we may publish an article that contains outdated information or cites a study that has since been revised or updated. In these cases, we will often revise the article and post the date of revision. In rare instances, we may pull an article altogether off our site.
We apologize for these errors and acknowledge the possible fallacy of our articles. Rest assured that we do our very best to publish articles based solely on reliable and accurate information.
