Expertscolumn is a publishing site based in India. It offers you the possibility to submit
articles and the choice of possible subjects is entirely up to you. They do not
insist on original material and allow you to republish articles you have
published on other sites like Shvoong. All they ask is that you use the same
user name as on the original publishing site so they can check you out. For
Shvoong writers, the site is interesting because they have a special section
for all kind of reviews where you could republish what you produced for Shvoong
or any other site.
The user name proviso installed by the makers of Expertscolumn is a good thing, but it
has its drawbacks, too. A username of any site is still just a name and could
be used by a cheat to republish someone else’s articles on Expertscolumn. The
management of Expertscolumn is quite ruthless in such cases, though. If you find
your name and your articles being used there and you can provide proof of your
ownership of the original content (usually no problem), then they turn over the
cheating account to you. It has been done before.
The problem described shows up why every Shvoong writer should open up an account
with Expertscolumn even if they intend not to use it to publish anything. Getting
your Shvoong name secured will make Expertscolumn’s management aware of your
existence prior to cheats using it to their own ends. I would advise you to
open your account immediately using your Shvoong name in identical spelling. If
you haven’t done so yet, you may use the link at the end of the article under relevant links.
Apart from securing your name there, you might want to take advantage of its
possibilities as a site to republish your articles. Apart from that, Expertscolumn
offers quite a few interesting features:
