I need 5 articles of around 300 words on specific and related subjects. Where should I go to get these written? How should I specify what I want? How long will it take? How much should I expect to pay? How can I be sure it's not plagiarized content?

There'a a place I've used on a few occasions which is good value. You can set a topic for writers and then choose which ones you would like to use out of what they write. There is no obligation to use them if they are not suitable (a great bonus)

When I've used them, I've had articles within a few days of posting. You can then choose which rights you want - you can choose between about 4 different types - the most expensive being one you can have exclusive rights, and edit it to your hearts content (even changing the author name to yours). The cheapest option, just gives you the right to reprint it 'as-is' with no exclusivity (ie, someone else can then buy the article too)

The prices (even for the exclusive rights option) are pretty good

Sticky me if you want more info. I would drop a hint to the domain name but I dont know if I'm allowed.

You are worried about plagiarized content?

I would look at wikipedia, you can copy and plagiarize yourself as long as you maintain their rules of publication.....which IMHO is far easier to achieve than finding a third party to do it for you!

Look up the articles at wikipedia, modify as you wish, and post accordingly within their guidelines of use.

It's cheap, cheerful, accurate, legal free, and the links might even help you, they certainly won't diminish your users experience of your site :)

what I don't want to be stuck with is a duplicate content penalty.
