We welcome and encourage guest posts from current, prospective, and recently-submitted PhD students, whether you are studying at the University of Edinburgh or elsewhere. If you wish to contribute a post please email our editors at pubsandpublications@gmail.com with either your idea or your completed post. We advise that blogs should be a minimum of 300 words but no more than 1000. We publish on a wide variety of topics, but if you are unsure about suitability of any subject please don’t hesitate to email us. We would also be delighted to include links to our writer’s personal blogs, twitters, and other social media accounts.

Although producing a PhD can be highly rewarding, it can also be stressful and solitary, and it is occasionally difficult to talk openly about our struggles.  We therefore offer the option of posting anonymously.  If you wish your contribution to be published anonymously please specify as such when you email us.

In the interest of not getting charged with plagiarism, we ask that you please reference where necessary.  For similar reasons we are unable to accept posts that have been published elsewhere.  Our editors reserve the right to make any necessary corrections (in agreement with the author), as well as to reject posts outright.
