  • Opinion Articles are around 500-750 words in length and present the author’s view on a matter.

Please make sure to attach a short bio and photograph of yourself to your e-mail (they will be published alongside your article). Submit your article in Microsoft Word-Format and make use of in-text hyperlinks if you want to include a source. If necessary, you can add a list of important sources used at the end of your article.

We usually do not accept articles from undergraduate students (except for our essay competitions).
