    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: The Three Classes of Cancer (must be signed in to view)

      You need to spend time reading the articles in the Learning Center (Help button, top right).  They will tell you everything you need to know to write articles for HubPages that will be published and featured.

    Hi. Here are a few points to note.

    You've written a health article, so you must include authoritative references for the information that you've included.

    I don't understand the organization of the second part of the article. You have a callout saying "The Common Types of Cancer and What Causes Them", but there's nothing written underneath. Instead, you have two pictures copied from other websites. The images that we use in our articles must have a commercial creative commons licence or a public domain one.

    The article is too short. It should be at least 1,000 words. You need to include more information that goes beyond the basic definitions.

    The first paragraph looks a bit long and could probably be broken up. I think you might mean "sites" instead of "cites" in the last word before the callout.

      Hi AliciaC. Thanks for the feedback. I've made the recommended changes to the article, hopefully it's a bit better than before. About the images, I provided their sources, however, I'm unsure how to acquire images with a commercial creative license, kindly advise on how to do so.

        Wikimedia Commons is a good source of creative commons images, though you should check the licence of each image to be sure that it's suitable. This article in the Help section of HubPages has advice about image use.

        I still don't see any references in your article. Every health article needs these. They are necessary even though you have a degree in biology.

        I don't think you should rush in updating the article. The altered title is very long. It also ends in a period and isn't written in APA title case.

          Thanks. I'll look into the images, relevant references and changing the title.
