Quick Guide to Physics & Astronomy Blogging

We welcome contributions from across the School of Physics and Astronomy, and this brief post describes what we’re looking for in a successful post.

Blog posts tend to be short, timely, and eye-catching, aiming to capture the attention of the reader and to provide a record of the events and activities occurring within our School. We welcome email submissions from any member of the School – please send directly to the Editor.

What to Include in the Email

  • A short, descriptive title.
  • A single sentence to introduces the blog (like the bold, italic sentence at the top of this page), and states the name of the author.
  • A proposed date for publication.
  • An eye-catching image, preferably square (or close to it), with a suggested caption.
  • Any links or YouTube clips to embed in the blog post.

Ideas for Content

There’s no real limit to what we’ll consider for inclusion within the Physics and Astronomy blog, provided it is of interest to the community.

  • Maybe you’ve had a paper published on a new scientific result, and would like to describe the discovery to a general audience?
  • Maybe you’re planning an event or running a society, and would like to advertise to the wider community?
  • Or you’ve been involved in public engagement, outreach, internships, or EDI (equality, diversity, inclusivity) events, and would like to share your experiences?
  • Maybe you have an opinion on timely news that’s relevant to the School of Physics and Astronomy, and would like to blog about it?
  • If you’ve won a prize, gained an award, or been honoured in any way, we want to celebrate and share with the School!

Our aim is to celebrate the successes of our diverse School, and ensure that everyone is aware of the opportunities available to them during their time in Leicester.
