There are a few but important key general rules for a Jeune Europe article:
1) References: articles must have solid arguments supported by references in footnotes. Of course, not all articles require references (e.g. an article talking about some personal experiences does not).
2) Be clear in what you say: remember that you are also talking to people who do not have the same background as you (e.g. if you are writing about economics and, talking of the stock market you mention the price of “futures” it is good to add a note explaining what “futures” are).
3) All content must be available in more than one language: Jeune Europe is made of people coming from different places, no article gets published before being translated in at least another language.
a) Use Word to write your article, then share the word file with us by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review the article with comments from our proof-readers.
b) Times New Roman 12, max 3 pages (2 is better)
c) Title: make sure it includes keywords of the topic and it is shorter than 5-6 words (google SEO prefers so)
e) 2-3 photos (these must be copyright-free, either your own photos or from free websites such as Pixabay)
Keep the translation as much faithful to the text as possible
