We’re committed to bringing you authoritative, approachable, and actionable content that inspires and guides you toward the best possible health outcomes for you and your family.
We always welcome having new writers join our contributor pool. They must have a strong desire to produce quality content with actionable advice that readers can apply in their own life and projects.
The purpose is to help other biology bloggers to reach out to a new audience base and share more quality materials from subject experts.
In return, we pay our writers above industry rates for their work.
What kind of content do we publish?
We publish only biology-, health- and fitness-related content from qualified author. Please note that our Editorial Review Board medically review each article for facts.
We also take plagiarism very seriously at BIOSCIENCE. We use Plagiarisma to ensure all articles are original.
Expressions of interest
Below you’ll find a form you can use to tell us about yourself and upload your article(s). If you’re a good fit, we’ll add you to our contributor pool. When editors begin planning upcoming hubs, they’ll put out a call for interest to the contributor pool, seeking authors with the relevant expertise.
Tell us a little about yourself and what you do, your qualification and expertise in relevant field of health and biology, and point us towards some of your existing written work.
Some of our editors will assess a writer’s skills, and help them develop further, by engaging them in our Peer Review program.
The goal of Peer Review is to ensure all of BIOSCIENCE.’s articles are of the highest standards. It is also there to help authors with their writing through constructive feedback from the editor and fellow authors.
Working with editors
Our editors at BIOSCIENCE.COM.PK are all professional doctors, nurses, technologists, teachers, and web people at the top of their respective fields with good training of CMS (Content Management System).
Most editors manage content production through Trello, a project management platform. This is where most of the communication between you and the editor will occur. Other editors use GitHub or email for private discussions. Your editor will instruct you on the best communications medium to use, and give you tips for getting the most out of them.
The editor is your primary contact during hub production, and works directly with you as your article is developed. They ensure that the published article is concise and correct, providing constructive feedback for you along the way.
Your relationship with the editor needs to be managed effectively. Here are some important things to bear in mind:
Deadlines are important. If something is amiss and you are unable to meet the scheduled deadline, please inform the editor why as soon as possible. Generally they are very understanding.
Proofread your article draft before submission. A clear structure will make the editorial process easier (and quicker) for the both of you. Usually the rule of thumb is 1. Introduction, 2. Paragraphs presenting an idea that supports your viewpoint, and 3. Conclusion/Summary that reinforces what you’ve said.
Do not take feedback as a personal attack. Editors will always provide feedback that is constructive and aids the development of your article.
One editor looks after many authors. They may be delayed in answering your enquiries. Be patient.
We take plagiarism very seriously at BIOSCIENCE.COM.PK. We use Plagiarisma to ensure all articles are original.
