Write for PubhD Cork’s Blog


We are looking for unique, quality blog posts that will prove interesting or useful to the public and extend outreach for Masters, PhD candidates and researchers. We are looking for blog pieces from any academic field to publish on our PubhD blog. Whether you are into Astrophysics, Zoology, Literature or anywhere in between we want to hear from you! It is a great opportunity to get your research out there and to highlight the forthcoming research being undertaken around Cork!

The idea behind the the PubhD blog is to bring research to the public in a manner which they can understand, enjoy and share. We really hope to get insightful material for our blog from both past and future speakers, as well as other researchers looking to share their ideas with the PubhD community. Whatever your interest and expertise, we want to hear about it!

Generally, articles should be approximately 500 words in length (or less) and be pitched at a non-expert level. Remember, the beauty of PubhD is that it is likely a non-specialist will be reading your work so don’t put yourself under any pressure to write a conference paper. Just let us know what you’re working on and how you’re going about it!

  • Although, the ideal length is 500 words it is acceptable to deviate on either side of that mark when necessary.
  • Links to source material should be provided where possible either by hyperlink or list.
  • Audio and visual material can be used to help with engaging the audience in your article, as well as providing further insight to your research topic/ field.
  • Feel free to provide any relevant photos or links to media such as video or audio, as we can utilise these within the article and provide a rich experience to your blog post.

The article can be submitted using our website’s submission system (more details below) or via email (preferably in PDF format). For more details on blog guidelines please check out this PDF.
