Blog Requirements

The nitty gritty:

  • Audience
    We have a broad audience of students, researchers, and practitioners in disciplines from social sciences to biology to meteorology and much more. We are a truly interdisciplinary group. Language should be accessible to this audience.
  • Goals
    We don’t require particular goals but you might be writing to: informally connect with others in your field, share your experiences, show that you know how to translate your science to broader audiences, get noticed for job opportunities, or just share your excitement about your work.
  • General requirements
    (1) 600-1,000 words, (2) a social media blurb, (3) a 50 word bio, (4) images, and (5) suggested content tags
