HOW LONG SHOULD THE ARTICLE BE? 

We are quite flexible on length however the best way to ensure your article is being read is a word count of between 1,000 and 2,000 words.

WHAT TONE OR STYLE SHOULD THE ARTICLE ADOPT?

Try to keep technical or academic language to a minimum, and where you have to use such language, try to include an explanation or reference for those not familiar with such terminology. Footnotes are discouraged unless they are absolutely necessary, with preference for hyperlinks directly within the text.

Please use UK (British) English. Questions about grammar and language can be resolved by use of the following European style guide.
