This editorial policy explains how Minimal Angle’s content is processed before publication. It also provides potential external authors with guidelines.
Minimal Angles’s content is mainly written for people interested in Minimalism and tangentially related subtopics.
Each written article must be backed by trustworthy sources.
Trustworthy sources don’t just make claims but can back them with data (e.g., statistics, trustworthy quotes, etc.). However, it is understood that not all sources can provide statistically representative data and sometimes only approach the latter.
When possible, own statistics can be produced based on research about a particular topic.
So the content includes secondary and or primary sources that provide reliable data.

- Minimalism in digital spaces

Headings, subheadings, easily readable paragraphs, and a featured image needs to be included in all articles. Tables, bullet points, and infographics should be included wherever possible and where suitable for the particular content.
