Why write for ParticleBites?

ParticeBites is part of the ScienceBites network of scientific reader’s digest blogs. As a ParticleBites writer, you will

  • actively engage with current research by summarizing recent particle physics results
  • connect with a global network of science communicators
  • inspire the next generation of physicists
  • collaborate with like-minded researchers to sharpen your writing and editing skills
  • participate a series of exclusive ComSciCon workshops for early career scientists
  • network with guest physicists and journalists through regular meet ups
  • access to ParticleBites swag (stickers, mugs)

How are authors selected?

Authors will be selected based on their academic and science communication backgrounds, and a sample ParticleBite blog post.

Post format and frequency

Authors are expected to write one post every month. A ParticleBites post summarizes a recent or classic research result from the arXiv to an undergraduate student audience. A typical post is between 500-1000 words, contains a figure from the paper, and a list of references where a student can learn more.

Different styles of posts are also welcome. ParticleBites is a platform for insights into life as an early career physicists, advice columns for students, particle physics conference summaries.

How do I apply?
