Girl Museum Plagiarism Policy

Girl Museum upholds the highest standards as a professional museum. We make every effort to cite direct quotes, typically through in-text links to the source material or a citations/resources list at the end of each exhibit or blog post. However, we also discuss topics that may be considered common knowledge, such as biographies. We do not typically cite common knowledge material because it is widely known, undisputed and easily verified, and it generally cannot be attributed to a specific person or paper.

Girl Museum Advertising and Guest Blogging Policy

Girl Museum does not accept unsolicited or paid advertising. We do not pay to post anything on our site. We almost never promote any third-party product on our blog. However, if you think yours is legitimately positive for the health and well being of girls, send us detailed information and we will consider it.
