27x1000 word articles on Commodities / Finance

We have this interesting project on writing about the world's major commodities.

We are after 27 x 1000 word articles on each major commodity. Articles are to be written for an encyclopedia (ie we do not want "journalism" or "opinions" just hard facts).

Articles to be written in 'Wikipedia' format which is a simple way of formating text.

Successful bidder must have strong command of english, excellent grammar, and must have experience writing about financial topics. Bidder must be good at independent research.

All references to facts or figures must be referenced appropriately in the footnotes (source, author, title, date, link).

All articles must be original and will be checked in copyscape.

Bidder to load articles directly into wikipedia. We will then review these drafts and provide edits/items for change. Bidder agrees to allow us up to three reviews before finalisation.
