Expanded Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be unique and original. This means, the submission must not have been published anywhere else (print, digital, etc.) and is not intended to be republished or distributed anywhere else (print, digital, etc.). All content must be unique and the contributor must obtain applicable copyright permissions for any component of the submission that may require copyright clearance. If the author would like to repurpose a previously published work, they must be able to certify that 75% of the work has been modified in order to make the submission unique.

Recovery Illustrated, Inc. will not accept promotional content of any kind unless it is purchased through the advertising department. Submissions must be interesting, informative, and be more beneficial to the readers than to the contributors – the Editorial staff will make this determination. Contributors will be provided a bio at the end of their contribution with contact, credential, and affiliation information and links to appropriate media (such links will be reviewed in the overall appropriateness of the contribution).

All submissions are subject to copy editing for adherence to American English rules of grammar, punctuation, spelling, and length. Suggestions for changes of the title of submissions are common and will be presented to the contributor for approval.

Articles with the best chance of being published are easy to understand for a very diverse population (guideline: eighth to twelfth grade reading level). Sources of information should be appropriately cited. Recovery Illustrated assumes all contributors have obtained any copyright permissions necessary to publish their submission (including images).

Recovery Illustrated reserves the right to determine the most appropriate issue in which to publish an accepted publication.
