Informal science communication should be simple and fun. That’s why we only have a small number of submission guidelines. Please feel free to be as original and as creative as you like!

  • Recommended Structure: Title, Author Name, Hook, Subject Area, Introductory Paragraph, Body, Closing Paragraph
  • Word Count: Approx. 750–1000 words
  • Image Use: Images in the public domain should be used where possible, otherwise a link to the online source should be given
  • Referencing Style: Harvard

These are preliminary guidelines, and are subject to change.

If you have an idea for an article which requires some deviation from these guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to discuss it with you.
