Notes for Contributors
If you want to write about human rights, we’re keen to hear from you. You do not have to be a member of the LSE Human Rights Blog Editorial Board or affiliated to LSE to submit a post. We are open to critical and interdisciplinary perspectives on human rights.
If you have a topic that you’d like to write about, just email an outline of your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Published articles should be between 500 and 1000 words long. Audio-visual contributions are also welcome, and should be accompanied by a short introductory paragraph.
Blog posts should be thought-provoking and accessible. We invite content in the form of reviews and pre-views, interviews, political and legal commentary, media analyses, reports on current events, cultural critiques and observations, short films and audio material.
The editorial process
The LSE Human Rights Blog editorial process is as follows:
- Email your blog idea/pitch to email@example.com
- If the idea is accepted, we’ll contact you to ask you to submit your post as a document file. Please incorporate all references used into the body of the draft in the form of hyperlinks, with a separate list of sources at the end.
- All posts are reviewed by a first-editor from the LSE Human Rights Blog Editorial Board. If any changes are required, it will be sent back to the author for revisions at this stage.
- Next a second-editor will review the document and send it to the Lead Editor for final review.
- Once we have a mutually agreed final draft, the piece will be published.
- We encourage you to engage with any comments that are made on the piece, but you will need to do so via the Editorial Board.
