LMG Content Standards

LMG carefully selects colleagues of high integrity who value their professional reputations. The work of others must be properly acknowledged and cited. All sources must be properly credited. Except as allowed by express instruction (i.e., use of OER  material),  with the exception of properly attributed quotes, all submissions must be original material. 

All contributions are subject to screening by analysis programs designed to identify similarities to material already in publication (both print and online). Plagiarism or artistic deception (e.g. altering photos or film) will not be tolerated and is treated as both academic fraud and, when accompanied by a demand for payment, potentially prosecuted as criminal fraud.

Corrections

LMG is responsible for the quality of its work. Although the format of corrections may vary across media platforms, it is longstanding LMG policy to admit errors and to clarify or correct published work as quickly and accurately as possible.

Unsolicited Submissions

LMG does not accept unsolicited samples of work, submissions, or proposals of any kind. Those who send unsolicited submissions waive their rights in all venues to claim subsequent intellectual property rights infringement or any form of damages against all recipients of unsolicited materal and their designated agents and affiliates.

Invoices and payments: Independent contractors should submit work as it is completed and submit an invoice for all work delivered. Please submit separate invoices for individual projects and SOWs as printable email attachments.

LMG accepts, via email, any style of invoice that specifies the following: Name, SSN or other Tax ID, Mailing Address, a brief outline of the work performed, a resonable specification of sums due. Failure to submit a proper invoice may delay payment.

Contributors may request electronic payments in US Dollars ($), Pounds (£), Euros (€), Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, or Hong Kong Dollars via online electronic transfer services. If, at its discretion, LMG agrees to the transfer, the contributor shall be responsible for all currency exchange, transfer, and electronic payment fees. LMG entities do not endorse any electronic payment service, nor can we indemnify colleagues for loss due electronic transfer procedures or failures beyond our control.
