We are now accepting article submissions for our blog!
- Blog posts should be within 700-1500 words. Any posts that exceed that limit will be considered for publication at the discretion of the Editorial Board and/or edited for length and clarity.
- Blog posts may reference the authors’ academic work, but should not read as academic articles. Make sure to use short sentences and paragraphs, a few catchy subheadings, and avoid hard-to-understand technical terms and concepts.
- Authors may choose to use either British or American English spelling style as long as it is consistent throughout the blog post. Foreign words and phrases should be italicised with the English translation provided in parentheses immediately following the first usage of the word or phrase.
- Authors should ensure that references are hyperlinked into the text of the blog post and not in the form of footnotes/endnotes. Always use hyperlinks for media articles. If using academic sources (e.g., journal articles, books) this should be hyperlinked when possible.
- For journal articles, this includes the link to the journal’s online database.
- For books, this includes a link to the publisher’s website.
- Blog posts without any references will be returned and requested to resubmit with references when appropriate. This is to ensure that supporting evidence is provided in the author’s claims. Any statistical information referenced should be sourced.
- If images or figures are used from a third-party source, please ensure you credit the source if it is available for public use (e.g., Twitter image). If it is not available for public use, please secure permission from the owner of the image or figure prior to publication.
- The writing style should be appropriate to a blog (rather than a journal article): e.g., short sentences, catchy subheadings, and limited scholarly jargon.
- Please note that any submission must be an original piece of work, that is, not published or considered for publication elsewhere.
- Submissions are held to high ethical standards in research production, whether this pertains to academic guidelines, journalism ethics, or practitioner codes in the respective field
- Please ensure that up to five keywords, a copyright-cleared image and a short (one or two sentence) lede is also included with a blog submission.
- Please send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
