Do you want to contribute to Laboratory News?


Join the Laboratory News community; this is your magazine and we want you to be part of it. There are several ways in which you can get involved – we can’t wait to hear from you…

The Guest Book

Recount a funny incident that happened in your laboratory, tell us about your latest research or reply to one of our editorial comments – The Guest Book is your chance to share your life as a scientist.

This personal look at science needs to be around 400-500 words and can be on any topic you chose – and don’t worry – you can be as controversial as you like.

The Big Ask

This is a more formal Q&A piece about you and your work. Tell us about your latest research, award win or ways in which you promote science.

Previous examples can be found here.


We’re always on the lookout for great content, and if you’d like to contribute a longer, in-depth piece about your research project or an issue affecting science, send the editor a short synopsis.
