Prospective authors should first give a brief description of qualifications, institutional affiliations and expertise in the subject they are writing about.
Articles should be written in the style of a popular magazine. The articles should be specifically related to scientific endeavours in Australia and New Zealand with broad public interest.
As Australasian Science is read by a number of school students, teachers and the general public (through newsagencies), the style of writing needs to be pitched at a lay level and written in an engaging style emphasising the significance of the work to everyday life.
Include the thrust of your work and its significance in the introduction, and take your time to describe background concepts assuming no specialist knowledge on the part of the reader. Avoid jargon wherever possible.
Articles should be submitted by e-mail (email@example.com) as an attachment saved in MS Word.
Images should be either provided as a high-resolution (1500 pixels wide) JPG or PDF files. Note that graphics embedded in Word or Powerpoint documents are often unsuitable.
Australasian Science does not pay for articles published, and does not evaluate inventions or theoretical papers. These should be submitted to peer-reviewed journals instead.
As Australasian Science makes no obligation to publish unsolicited articles, please submit an outline as a proposal prior to submitting a completed manuscript. The outline should explain the significance of the work to everyday life.
Authors of accepted works will be required to sign a copyright assignment form prior to publication.
