must articles be totally new or can I use articles previously published elsewhere?
I refer to original articles 100% written by me.
I assume you're talking about hubpages.
You can use content, created by you, even if it's already been published.
However, if you've published it a lot (like on 20 sites already), it may flag your hub as duplicate content. If it's only like 2-5 sites, it won't flag it.
10DollarMark's advice is incorrect.
If you publish material that you've published anywhere else on the internet, even just once, HubPages will rank down the Hub you've created here as the material is not original.
If you don't mind your HubScore being lower, you can reuse material, however, to get the best performance from your Hubs, you will want to write entirely new content for your Hubs.

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...
