Submission of articles to People’s Review is quite simple. We publish articles on politics, economy, society, foreign affairs, art and culture, science and technology, campus updates, and everything else that affects the lives and livelihood of the people. Our endeavour is to provide a non-partisan view and publish articles that critically analyse facts and figures to reach the truth. The political orientation of the writers doesn’t matter, the content of the articles does; if the articles are backed up by well-researched facts and figures then they will be published by People’s Review. If the writers are able to put up very strong arguments in favour of their opinion, we will publish their articles to start discussion and debates on those points even if they contradict the official viewpoint of People’s Review editorial team.
