      Hi tere,

      Some of your text has been copied from Wikipedia. I'm not sure why people think it's okay to do this? You have to use your own words.


      I see an awful lot of very similar material on the web. What does your article offer that is different?

      You need to add an introduction to explain to the reader what the article is about and the message you are hoping to convey.

      You've cited Creative Biomart as the source of your image. Go to their website, scroll to the bottom and you will see a very clear copyright, all rights reserved, message. That means you cannot republish their images without their express permission. Then you would say, "Reproduced with permission from Biomart".

      You can use images from Wikipedia, as long as you adhere to their instructions for doing so. You usually have to credit the image copyright holder/creator.

      Edit: I had a look at your other article and it looks like you have published it elsewhere prior to HubPages. It will be flagged as duplicate content. Articles must be original and first published here. Afterwards, you are able to publish them anywhere you want to.

      Hope that helps.

    Dear theraggededge , thanks so much for your kind suggestion on my article. Some of them do help!

    About the citation from Wikipedia, I'll try to rewrite it or adding the credit of Wikipedia.

    For the pictures I use in my articles, yes, I've already got the rights from BioMart. Yet your suggestion is a good one too.

    I'll try to reformat this article. Many thanks!

    About the published one, well, I did publish it firstly on hub, but it took longer to be published than it did on other webs after my re-editings. smile

    Trying to write more good articles. On the way...

    If you are going to cite something, it should be an authority of some kind.  Don't just put quotes around something from Wikipedia because it's easier than trying to paraphrase.  Wikipedia isn't considered an authority - you would do better using other sources.
