Buletin Sukan’s editorial team screens and edits every article. There can be several reasons for rejection, including:
1. Too many language and grammatical errors.
2. Any part of the article is plagiarized.
3. It is irrational or without factual backing.
4. It is poorly researched.
5. It spews hatred against any particular player, team, community, country or region.
6. It pokes fun at any person or player based on physical appearances.
