Interested in science writing? Get published!

Are you interested in science? The science publishing business can be a tough one to break into – many a passionate science communicator dreams of getting a book deal or a newspaper column. Guru is proud to be a crowd-sourced project and we encourage anyone with an interest in science to contribute.

In our first six months, Guru Magazine was downloaded an estimated 80,000 times – not counting the number website visitors. We exist to prove science can be accessible to a general interest reader without compromising on the facts. Our philosophy is to let scientists, writers and the general public engage with a wider audience – to stimulate interest, excitement and debate. We’re also here to give new and upcoming writers and artists a platform to showcase their work.

Of course, you don’t need any qualifications. Guru is here for anyone with an interest in science, technology, health, nutrition or psychology.

Every week we like to publish on this website an opinion piece. This might be:

  • Reviews
  • Rants
  • Interviews
  • Personal Stories
  • Photos, videos, artwork or infographics

If you’d like to share your views with the Guru community then just drop us a line, or submit your article to info@gurumagazine.org.

Submission of articles can be in Word, pdf or any widely used word processor format. Suggested article length 300-1,000 words.

There are just a few simple rules:

  • Submit articles and ideas that is likely to be relevant or of interest to a large audience
  • Avoid writing that includes technical jargon wherever possible
  • Do not try to promote or advertise a commercial product or service
  • Writing should refer to scientific research wherever appropriate

Guru is not affiliated to any religious or political organisation. All published articles will be the author’s own opinions and may not reflect the views of Guru Magazine. If you don’t agree on what something has said – please leave your comments at the bottom of the post.
