Criteria for submission
**************************

This style guide is meant to provide general guidelines for drafting
archive-it description entries.

Contributions should be submitted directly on: http://eliterature.org/wiki/

All contributions should include the title of the work and the URL
where it resides. All contributions should name the entity that is
primarily responsible for making the work (name of Editor, Author or
other Creators). Please name the language that is used and the
publisher (the entity that makes the work available; i.e. name of a
person, organization or a service).

Additionally, you should provide a brief and substantial (1-3
sentence) description of the work, following these guidelines:

* You might want to identify the site's purpose, its content, its
creators and its aesthetic.
* You should focus on the work itself and its mode of presentation
(not the awards won or the influence exerted by the author or
institution).
* Evaluative statements and self-evaluations ought to be avoided.
* Avoid stating quotes (i.e. comments on a work) or reproductions of
reviews and blurbs written for promotional purpose.
* Information on technique, software and programming should not
precede or obscure descriptions of what a work is about.
* Important dates like the foundation of the site or journal should be
added in the description. Provide information on how often a journal
is published and what it is focusing on.
* Please include ISSN numbers in your description.
