Each submission is carefully moderated and is subject to consideration before publication.

How can I tell that my mind map was successfully submitted?
Once your submission is received, we will send you a permanent link to your mind map. You should immediately check this link; it will indicate that your submission is in progress.
Later you can use this link to share your map with friends or colleagues instead of sending them the whole map. You can also use this link to check the history of you file, new versions that will be submitted by others or you can even modify your map yourself and add it to the file history.
What kind of mind map should I submit?
Virtually any kind of mind map may be submitted: research ideas, casual brainstorming sessions, textbook and lecture notes, presentation materials, lesson plans, personal "to do" lists for the next week, projects, organizational schemes, innovations, or even something you‘re not quite sure how to categorize – perhaps a blueprint for a future story. You may be surprised to discover that people around the world are looking for your personal viewpoint, your vision, your ideas, and are interested in the way you have thought through a problem or plan. We often fail to recognize our own creative genius, but others may find what is obvious to us represents a breakthrough for them. Sometimes even a single strand of a mind map may be the key to unlocking a powerful idea or solution to a problem.
It is in our plans to extend language branches of the library.
What file formats are acceptable?
For optimum results, maps should be prepared as electronic data files using any of several well-known software programs such as MindManager, Visual Mind, ConceptDraw MindMap, Nova Mind, etc. We also accept hand-drawn maps, and for your convenience we allow submission of maps in any common graphical file formats. However, please be aware that files prepared with standard mind mapping applications such as those listed above are more fully supported with wide search capabilities. We make every attempt to ensure that each mind map submitted is attractively displayed and easily accessed on MindMapPedia.
Why should I flag files?

You can always share your opinion with us regarding any map by flagging it as error, spam or best of. Our flagging system allows you to point out what you feel about this map. If the map receives enough negative flags from you it will be removed (we count only one flag per person).
