Who can contribute?

Potentially anyone who can provide suitable material can contribute. In practice I will exercise my rights as publisher & editor of this site. Here are some style guidelines.

Email the contribution to contributions@childsupportanalysis.co.uk stating unambiguously the type of contribution and any special conditions (attributions, time limits, etc).

Type of contribution Who? Where? When? How?
Article or paper

Academics, researchers, and analysts with specific expertise to do with Child Support.

Politicians - Members of either House of Parliament, Government & Ministers, etc. Those aspiring to these positions.

Civil Servants and LA officials with specific responsibilities to do with Child Support.

Other professionals with specific relevant expertise and/or responsibilities.

Normally these will be published in full in a special guest section, but relevant links will be provided from elsewhere.

They will normally be published in full on the next possible first-of-month, and will remain as long as they are relevant, (but will be removed if the author requests). They can be published urgently if required. (If the dissent undermines, rather than disagrees with, material on the site, then the material on the site will instead be corrected or even removed, and typically the contribution from the dissenter will be acknowledged).

Authors should provide a means of contact in case there are issues to be sorted out before publication.

Normally these will be used to change or add to material in the site to make it more accurate and/or more useful.

Advertising or promotional material Typically people wanting to announce their relevant services. These might be charities, commercial services, etc.

Normally these will be published in full in a special guest section, but relevant links will be provided from elsewhere.

They will normally be published in full on the next possible first-of-month, and will remain as long as they are relevant, (but will be removed if the author requests). They will be identified as advertising or promotional material. (For the time being such material will be published free).

Others - I'm flexible!   Suggestions welcome!

Claimed reply on a CSA form:
"I cannot tell you the name of child A's dad as he informs me that to do so would blow his cover and that would have cataclysmic implications for the British economy. I am torn between doing right by you and right by my country, please advise."
