Welcome to the IVN Support Center
The IVN platform is an integrated news and information network built from the ground up for the Internet. IVN is, first and foremost, a source of public policy news and opinion. It is a one-stop shop for readers seeking both objective and subjective information on public policy, elections, and candidates. Finally, it is also a unique environment in which contributors can directly manage their entire online presence, including reputation management and social media strategy.
Are you a journalist, public official, or civic leader? Then, becoming a contributor is easy. All you have to do is click here, fill out a few questions, and sit back. An IVN editor will contact you shortly.
When you become a contributor, our experienced IVN editors will help you with everything you need to know to post an article and promote it.
IVN’s editors are also in charge of making sure all content meets the simple Etiquette Standards and Guidelines. Yellow journalism stops here.
When an article is published by IVN, it will be seen by thousands of daily IVN visitors and is indexed in the news by search engines like Google and Yahoo.
Contributors who have a proven record of understanding IVN’s standards are offered their own column. These columns can be on whatever politically relevant topic(s) you choose.
Unlike most news columns, contributors on IVN become the administrator. You can even add your own contributors to the blog. Even more, newsworthy column posts are often promoted to the front-page of IVN and shared with IVN’s social networks.
No more trying to beg some journalist to pick up your story. No more filter. At IVN, you can finally speak for yourself.
IVN’s reputation, credibility, and status as a news source are preserved through its adherence to a published etiquette and editorial guideline. These guidelines ensure that both contributors and readers benefit from robust and diverse content in a civil environment.
