MalariaWorld is looking for authors to write columns about malaria - in the broadest sense. What we all read in scientific articles on malaria is only the tip of the iceberg when it gets to the world of malaria. Our malaria world is shaped by funding agencies, meeting outcomes, opinionated individuals and politics, but also you.
MalariaWorld is looking for columnists that have ideas, views and opinions, and who are willing to write about critical issues in our field. But also reports on field visits, experiences, surprising results, or simply stories about malaria that captivate the global malaria community (our audience) are welcome.
If you are a good writer and are interested in this opportunity you should let us know. You should be a registered member of MalariaWorld and your main professional activity should be in the field of malaria.
Interesting columns may be invited to submit a full opinion or review article to the MalariaWorld Journal (remember: we do not charge author fees).
We will pay € 100 for each column, and by signing up you commit to writing five columns in 2014. Payment will be effected after the 5th column has been published in 2014.
To sign up, please send us an email (to firstname.lastname@example.org) with 'Columnist' in the subject header and the following details:
- Institution and position
- Information about your malaria work (max. 200 words)
- Your motivation to become a columnist for MalariaWorld (max. 500 words)
- If you have written columns (or have written popular science articles on malaria), please attach one or two to your email so that we get a feel for your experience and writing style.
The editorial office of the MalariaWorld Journal will make a selection amongst those that register. Selected columnists will receive specific dates in 2014 when their columns should be received by our office.
Remember the deadline for expressing your interest: 15 December!
We look forward to hearing from you,
The MalariaWorld team
