AnswersPlease works with a network of web sites to contract with over 14,000 experts to answer your questions. These experts must complete a certification process and undergo periodic peer reviews within the expert network. They are also continuously evaluated based upon customer feedback and ranking.
When an expert accepts your question and provides a preliminary answer, you can bring up their background and check their experience, work history, education, and professional licenses / certifications. And just like at the major auction sites, you can see how previous customers were satisfied or dissatisfied with the results delivered by each expert. What this means is that you have the ability to fully research the qualifications of an expert before viewing (and paying for) their response to your question.
With over 14,000 experts in the network, you can be assured that there is someone out there who can respond to your question and get you the answer you need. The network actively pursues experts with certification not only in legal and medical areas, but also animal care, auto repair, computer security, home improvement, and many other areas.
