Wallstreetmojo Editorial Policy

WSM Editorial Policy Standards

At WallStreetMojo, our mission is to provide quality contents in the simplest possible form making them easy to understand and interpret. They are prepared for and presented to readers irrespective of their level of knowledge in finance. Starting from someone who has zero knowledge in the field to those who gain expertise in the subject, the write-ups on our platform are meant for everyone.

Our mission is to have a financially literate society with every single individual understanding what finance is and how to manage it. The platform is dedicated to developing an understanding of different financial concepts first and then driving readers to save and invest to best utilize the monetary resources they earn. For a layman, we offer a junction where they stop-by to take their first step toward financial education, while for a professional, we have advanced content to help them upgrade their skills and apply for the next-level position.

We are neither here to endorse products or services nor do we aim to encourage or recommend buying, selling, or holding securities. Instead, we have detailed, informative content to let you know the pros and cons of doing so in addition to the different tools and techniques that could help you achieve expected results.

Principles

Above everything else that we aim to achieve, trustworthiness is supreme. We have always wanted our readers to trust our contents and we continue to do so, ensuring to become their primary go-to reliable source of financial information. Hence, we have a set of principles that encourage us to be true to our readers in all respects.

Originality

The contents on our website are original and unique. Our team of writers and editors do not consider rephrasing or copying the thought-process of any third-party websites. They put their creativity to work and come up with different angles to offer uniqueness to whatever they have to present to the readers. We are strictly against plagiarism and AI-generated content and do not encourage anything that compromises with the quality of our content and our reputation.

Neutrality

Our contents aim to inform and educate. None of our published or to-be-published write-ups favor a particular product or service provider. We only speak of the pros and cons of the product or services category, without having any intentions of promoting the work of one provider or the other. Our publications are free from any kind of bias.

Accuracy

Whether it is specific information or data or figures, we have a network of people through which the content passes. At every level, those pieces of information undergo verification. Only when it satisfies the editorial authorities of the website, starting from writers to editors to quality checkers and reviewers, a content is published. For readers, we try to make reputed government websites and other authorized sources containing those data and figures, available. If you spot any errors or updates, please send us an email on [email protected]

Humanness

With the advent of AI tools like ChatGPT, trusting a platform with human content is difficult. With us, at WallStreetMojo, there is no such scene of doubt. Our editorial policy doesn’t allow our writers to write or editors to accept anything that seems AI-generated. Our contents, therefore, are prepared by humans for the humans at the other end.

Compliance

One of the most significant principles of WallStreetMojo is to ensure meeting all quality standards and also guaranteeing no disobedience to any rules and regulations that might hamper our reputation as a reliable financial education resource provider. Plus, we never go against the standard code of ethics, ensuring we abide by all the moral rules that we have been voluntarily or involuntarily following.

Purpose

Since our emergence, we have been into finding clarity on how to satisfy the needs of our readers, who could be both a layman, a non-finance individual, and a professional, looking forward to upgrading their finance skills. With time, we have gained that clarity in the vision and gradually developed in all aspects to make sure we fulfill our purpose, which include being:

Informative

Our contents are well-researched drafts that undergo strict editing and quality check before getting published. Whether a reader comes to our website to gather knowledge on an economics concept or is willing to learn its application, they will get everything in the same content. Our articles have video tutorials embedded in them for readers to educate themselves in a more practical way. So, if a reader comes to us to check what real estate means, they will definitely get their answers, but along with that they will also come to know of the investment options that the real estate sector offers. This way, even if the readers do not intend to find out ways to manage their finances, we still try to encourage them to use effective ways of wealth building.

Engaging

Our readers are our assets and being finance enthusiasts, we know how important the role of our assets is in our growth and success. Hence, we always try finding ways to retain them at any cost. To achieve this, we make each of our pages and articles visually appealing. We have our excellent graphics team that convert the ideas of the writers and editors into attractive visuals. We ensure that even if our readers are running short of time to read the meaning of a concept, they can have a look at our images and understand what it states and how it works.

Inclusive

At WallStreetMojo, the writers understand the sections where the readers may come from. Hence, they research a topic as a beginner initially and then move to the advanced stage of the research. This, in turn, helps us have a topic covered from basic to advanced level for beginners as well as professionals to help them consume and use those contents in their favor. Plus, while going through a particular article on our website, if a reader comes across an unknown term, they might find that term linked to our other article talking about that topic itself. In short, we have self-sufficed write-ups available for our readers so that they do not have to switch through different websites for more information.

Effective

We do not prepare finance write-ups for the sake of publishing. Our main objective is to make it effective through the research we conduct and the information we put in. To ensure effectiveness, our readers can refer to the Examples section, which is our USP. In every article that we publish, we ensure having two examples, one hypothetical and another based on a real-world scenario. This helps our readers interpret the covered concepts well. In addition, the topics on mathematical concepts or involving a formula, we necessarily show a detailed calculation to clearly show how to use the formula to obtain accurate results.

Editorial Process

At WallStreetMojo, the topic ideas do not remain confined to how much they are searched for on Google or other search engines. Instead, our approach emphasizes covering anything that is finance. A topic that can educate even a single reader is worth the coverage for us. With the same bent of mind, we train our teams and members working in them.

Writers

Our team of international writers explore different ways of researching on a topic and they come up with an informative draft, covering all aspects from basic to advanced. They are given the liberty to use their own style and approach to present the data, while being restricted to adopt any means that might hamper our reputation.

Editors

Our team of international editors not only proofread the articles, but they also do the in-depth research and fact check before finally passing on to the next level. We expect our editors to be accurate in all respects and the best part is that they understand and are aware of what is expected from them. They take accountability and hence, they try to be as accurate and precise as possible in presenting the write-ups.

Operations

Besides those who take care of the words we present, we also have people who ensure taking care of what other elements accompany those words. From presenting the articles in an attractive way to ensuring the images created are visually appealing, they deal with it all.

Course Developers/Trainers

Our readers who are willing to explore more about the topics covered or they want to upgrade their skills in a more practical manner, they have our courses to enroll into. We have a separate set of experts who prepare these courses and tutorials for the learners. Like our articles, our courses also cover everything for a beginner to a pro level.

Quality Checking

This team checks the queued contents for originality, accuracy, effectiveness, inclusivity, humanness, and compliance with quality standards. In short, they ensure the write-ups and video tutorials to go live meet all our criteria with respect to the principles we follow and the purpose we aim to serve. This team is there to identify issues that the teams at the previous levels missed to notice.

Corrections

Our platform takes the responsibility of lack of clarity or correctness in the contents made available to readers. To ensure, our readers do not consume anything incorrect, we undergo constant checks on the published write-ups and other forms of contents that we publish. In case of doubts, we update the same, thereby informing our readers of where the issue was and it has been handled. 

Permission

The contents published on our platform involve a great deal of effort from the teams working at different levels. Hence, we expect the third-parties using our information to acknowledge us or provide proper attribution for our work they use on their platforms. The images that accompany our content or any graphic we use on our platform is our original work and are strictly against anyone using our work as their own without attributing required credits to WallStreetMojo.

Advertising Disclaimer

At WallStreetMojo, we have our advertisement partners who trust us with our reach and they want our reachability to help them generate leads. We are completely open to this revenue opportunity, but at the same time, we also guarantee that these advertisements and our editorial presentation remain separated and do not overlap. Ensuing uninterrupted readership experience is our priority and we never compromise with that.

We do have affiliate relationships with clients whose products we review to help them generate leads through our readership. You may find a hyperlink on the product names, in such instances, which when clicked by you gives us an additional opportunity to receive compensation. The same applies if you decide to sign up or subscribe to those websites or their products. As you reach them through us, we are compensated in return.
