Opera News Hub Unoriginal Articles Rules
If more than 25% of the content in your article is plagiarized, such an article will be rejected for copyright infringement and if repeated, this will lead to severe punishment on your account.
All creators on Opera News Hub must abide by the following rules:
1. Write only original content
Your articles must contain new facts about old findings, write follow-ups, opinions, analyses, listicles, explainers, or social media reactions. An article has to add incremental value to the information already available on the platform.
This gives you the opportunity to express yourself in your own original voice.
2. Avoid Excessive Quotes
Avoid copying more than two sentences in a row from the source you are quoting from.
Put in your own words and let the readers know you have paraphrased the original quote by using phrases like, “according to”, “as gathered” or “in the summary of the statement.”
3. General rule of thumb
Your article will be rejected for Plagiarism if you highlight and copy directly from the source, you have violated plagiarism rules, your article will be rejected for plagiarism.
Avoid writing a report or an article on trending events unless it aligns with your domain expertise, and has additional information or insight.
There is a good chance that there are a lot of articles reporting the same event by regular news media. Thus increasing your article’s chance to be rejected.
4. Expand the News
When writing news articles or reporting an issue, rather than following news-writing patterns such as ‘In a statement by’ or ‘It was made known in a statement released on Monday’, make sure to be natural and creative in your approach.
Reporting popular news events without additional information will very likely result in rejection because similar articles already exist on the platform.
Express yourself in your own way and let your creativity flow forth.
5. Drawing the line
It is not plagiarism to search for information on other sources such as the internet or other news as additional information or to express your personal opinions after analyzing what you already know.
All of the following are considered plagiarism on Opera New Hub:
Submitting someone else’s article as your own
Using someone’s idea or works without giving credit
Giving wrong information about the source of a quote
Misinterpretation of a quote
Changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source
