Read.cash is not static; it evolves. That, along with more than a year's experience of moderation at this platform, justifies updated and clarified community rules. Below you find rules applicable for all my presently active communities. This post suspends and replaces all previous presentations of rules.
A list of the communities follows after the rules.
You are welcome to submit articles, but please keep to the respective topics and follow the rules.
1. No off-topic material.
It is not uncommon that people submit their posts to any community whatsoever. For instance, it has happened that I have received articles about physics or personal life journeys to the community dedicated to Japanese culture and cultural history Such submissions are a waste of time, both yours and mine. Please make sure your topic matches the community definitions before submitting material.
2. Material must be in English.
If your English is not perfect, I will be tolerant about that to an extent, so you can practise and learn. Occasionally, however, I would give suggestions to corrections and improvements. If you don't pay attention to that, I might remove your article from the community again after some time. My goal is to have communities with high quality material.
But please note that articles in other languages than English will be rejected.
3. Plagiarism is not tolerated. Controls are thorough and moderation is strict. If you are unsure about how copyright works, please read “What You Need to Know about Copyright “.
4. Translated texts are not allowed unless you are the author of the original text yourself.
5. Quotes must be clearly marked as quotes by the use of citation marks (“) or quoting blocks. Quotes may be translated.
6. Minimum length of an article is 4 minutes estimated reading time. Articles being shorter than that will be rejected on the basis of being too short.
7. Only full articles. Short posts are not accepted.
8. Edit your text before submission. Hundreds of articles have been rejected for careless editing. Learn to use punctuation, capitalise correctly, and divide your text in sentences and paragraphs. Think of the reader; the text must be easy to read and understand.

The Mechanisms of Health (d52e)

As an author I cover a large number of topics, so it is hard to find what I write about a specific subject here at Read.cash. For that reason, I have created a tool which might be useful: a continuously updated “Index over my Articles at Read-cash”, where I have listed a large number of subjects and in which articles you can find respective topics. Everything with links.
I suggest other authors to do the same, especially if their production here is diverse.
