We do not edit articles and they are all published under a Creative Commons licence. The aim of Science Nutshell is for visitors to quickly find and read the scientific news of interest to them. All articles are therefore limited to 2000 characters (about 330 words).

Please avoid technical terms and aim your article at a general reader. Science Nutshell authors are typically either scientists describing their recent research, or science writers/bloggers summarising specific scientific developments/topics. Therefore it is a fantastic platform to start a science blog or simply to share your own research.
