    hello, what is considered a journal with regard to point 2 about previously published material? does that specifically mean journals only, or do webzines, blogs, social media, etc. count as well?


    1. editorwomaninc says:

      Webzines, blogs and social media count as well. In case you have posted your work in these places kindly remove them from their respective platforms before submitting.
