Here at TrendMD, one of our key differentiators is that our network is filled with high-quality, reliable scholarly content from premium publishers, marketers, and brands. Our overlying goal is to create a great user experience for scholarly readers around the world.
TrendMD accepts scholarly content, that you’ve published, produced yourself or co-authored with others. If you promote peer-reviewed content published behind a paywall, only those with a subscription to that online journal will be able to see your full-length article.
In our experience, readers enjoy and share content they find interesting. The more interesting your content, the more likely it is to be distributed across our network and discovered by our readers.
While we may not identify problematic content before it goes live, content will be blocked post-launch if we feel it compromises the safety, positivity, and/or quality of our network. In addition, any content linked to from the TrendMD service that is not identical to the content submitted to TrendMD for pre-approval shall be immediately removed. Furthermore, our distribution partners may choose to block specific pages or entire sources. If any customer is blocked by a significant portion of our publisher network, TrendMD may choose to terminate their campaigns. Any advertiser who repeatedly violates our guidelines will be blocked from the TrendMD network.
