QS WOWNEWS FAQ

What is QS WOWNEWS?

QS WOWNEWS is an online platform for institutions of higher learning (and related organizations) to submit their latest news stories and press releases. In some cases, they may be picked up by QS News Bites and other higher education news publications.

Who can submit stories?

To submit stories, you need to register. We will generally only accept accounts from universities and related institutions such as accreditation agencies, PR agencies which represent a university, etc. We manually screen new registrations.

We will generally accept only one account per university. But if a university requests multiple accounts, because certain units are autonomous or for another good reason, we will allow the creation of additional accounts.

Important Note: Latest news stories/press releases submitted online will not be reflected in the QS WOWNEWS (print edition), unless stated otherwise.

Do you publish every story?

QS reserves the right to edit or revise stories and may choose not to publish certain items.

You can “flag” the story with the “flag a story” button and state your reason for wanting the story removed. Our editors will then review your request. In case of copyright violations or other legal issues, you may also write to us at [email protected].

Can I submit stories anonymously?

No.

If I give you a tip or send you an envelope with secret information, will you write a story about it?

No. We’re not journalists. We don’t write stories. Try WikiLeaks.
