Welcome to Joomag’s content guidelines. Our platform lets users publish their online content to the Joomag Newsstand—the premier digital distribution channel connecting over 5 million monthly visitors to awe-inspiring publications. Before doing so, however, there are general guidelines your content must follow. We’ve outlined them below for you.
Please note that Joomag reserves the right to unpublish any content we deem incomplete, problematic, or offensive. Though we may not initially identify these types of content before they are published, content will be unpublished post-launch if we feel they compromise the integrity of our platform and/or network. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Content not marked as “adult”
Publications containing adult content must be marked as such before publishing. Once you have marked the content as adult (by going to ‘MY ACCOUNT’ > ‘MY MAGAZINES’ > ‘EDIT SETTINGS’), you will be able to publish it again.
Copyright violations and other material violating Joomag’s content criteria
Any content including copyright violations or other material infringing upon Joomag’s content criteria will be removed from our newsstand immediately. These are very serious issues, so please take the time to ensure your content meets these quality guidelines. You will be able to publish your content again once the issue is rectified.
Publications will be removed if they contain blank pages. Note that they can be published again once the appropriate changes are made (i.e. removing the blank pages or adding content to them). Pages can be managed individually by navigating to ‘MY ACCOUNT’ > ‘MY MAGAZINES’ > ‘EDIT SETTINGS’ > ‘PAGES.’
Unfinished pages, dummy/placeholder text, or images
We will unpublish any content that includes unfinished pages with dummy texts or images. Fixing this issue by replacing the dummy text with the actual copy will let you publish your content to the newsstand.
Problem with a publication’s description, volume, and/or title
Occasionally, publishers do not provide the correct information for their publication’s description, volume, and/or title. Once the appropriate changes are made, by navigating to ‘MY ACCOUNT’ > ‘MY MAGAZINES’ > ‘EDIT SETTINGS’ > ‘ISSUE INFO,’ the content can be republished.
Incorrect publication category
Publications placed in incorrect categories will also be removed from the newsstand. Users can resolve the issue by going to ‘MY ACCOUNT’ > ‘MY MAGAZINES’ > ‘EDIT SETTINGS’ > ‘ISSUE INFO’ and selecting the correct category.
Publication contains low-resolution images
Some publications include low-resolution images that are indiscernible by viewers. If your publication has been unpublished from the newsstand on this basis, you will need to upload higher resolution images and publish the content again.
Publication doesn’t contain valuable enough information for readers
Spammed content from which the user repeatedly sends unsolicited messages that do not provide valuable information to readers will be unpublished from the Joomag Newsstand. Note that you will be able to publish it again once the issue is corrected. If you decide to publish your issue without making the necessary changes, your account will be permanently terminated and your publication will become unavailable on our website.
We value each and every one of our newsstand content contributors. It’s because of their hard work and dedication that we strive to uphold a stringent publishing policy that is respectful and fair. So keep following the rules, keep providing the best content, and keep on publishing with Joomag!
