Please note that as of 2020, Women Are Boring is no longer active and is not accepting new submissions.
We feature research carried out by women in all academic disciplines, accessible to everyone, so that anyone can appreciate and learn from the important work taking place across a range of fields. We welcome pieces on your research topic in general (for example, a short piece explaining what your research is, why you’re doing it and why it’s important to you/the wider world), or pieces on a specific aspect of your research. Have a look at the pieces we’ve already published for an idea as to what others have chosen to write about. If you’d like to write something, we’d love to feature you – get in touch!
Posts are aimed at a general audience and should be short and sweet(-ish). Our guide word limit is approximately 1000 – 2000 words. Pieces must be in an editorial format before they will be published on the site. This can be tricky, but that’s the point of the blog – learning to communicate your research to a general audience! Pieces should be written in an informal style, with jargon kept to a minimum, and a clear explanation of any academic terms used. Email us at email@example.com with any writing you’d like to submit, or any ideas you’d like to pitch to us.
If there’s something you’d like to write about in a longer format, shoot us an email first (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can chat about it. Likewise, if you’d like to write a series of posts on a certain subject, get in touch!
If you are not a student/working in academia, but have something you’d love to write about, we’d still love to hear from you – do get in touch!
Don’t worry if you don’t hear back from us right away – we will reply to your email within 48 hours.
A Note on the WomenAreBoring Blog
The Women Are Boring blog is dedicated to disseminating interesting research, by interesting women. As with all things worth doing, we are aware that research is debatable and worthy of contestation. This is something we encourage. As such, the opinions and views shared are those of each individual article’s author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Catherine Connolly or Grace McDermott.
