The posts can be in the usual format of (hyper)text, or a combination of media and (hyper)text, or other web-based explorative formats. If you are planning to develop something of the latter kind, please let us know in advance, so that we can ensure that our blog will be able to host it. As for text-based posts, we prefer entries of 1500-3000 words length.

Style Guide

These instructions apply if you are submitting a post in (hyper)text, or in a combination of media and (hyper)text:

  • Submit the post in .txt, .odt, or .docx format.
  • Images, if any, should not be pasted within the document itself but be provided separately, with clear indication within the text about which image should be inserted where.
  • If the post includes audio/video files, please mention the hyperlink to the audio/video file in the text where it is to be inserted.
  • When inserting hyperlinks into the text, please do not use inline hyperlinks or footnotes, but use endnotes.
