RSA Blog Guidelines

  • The suggested length of articles is between 500-800 words.
  • A photo of the author must be included
  • At least one photo of the study area should be included.
  • Author names and work place affiliations are required with all posts. Authors have the option of providing their Twitter handle. Any author can note that he or she is writing in a personal capacity.
  • Authors must provide an 80-100 word personal bio for use on the site
  • Posts should be written in a more conversational style than traditional academic papers, yet aim to convey scholarly ideas pertaining to the topic. The Editorial Team reserves the right to copyedit submitted articles, which may include spelling, grammar, formatting, use of evidence and stylistic changes. Authors have the right to review changes and approve for publication.
  • All articles should be evidence-based and backed by research. While there is no requirement on the number of references used, the Editorial Team suggests that at least two sources of information be included, which will ideally be hyperlinked throughout the text.
