Belarus Digest is recruiting new authors

Belarus Digest seeks talented authors.

Most of the materials written for Belarus Digest are contributed by a regular team of authors. However, Belarus Digest welcomes contributions from other authors and is constantly expanding its core team.

Whether a summary of a recent policy paper or a PhD dissertation, sharing Belarus-related experience or a personal opinion—the texts should conform to the general style of Belarus Digest.

Content Guidelines

  • The texts should deal with current problems and events which affect Belarus or Belarus-related policy-making.
  • The piece should be in English and should not be overly technical or theoretical, but practical and engaging.
  • Belarus Digest presents research results in a concise manner and encourages submission of short texts. The length should be less than 1,000 words.
  • The authors are requested to provide a sentence or two summarising the contribution’s key message in the first two paragraphs.
  • Texts should be accompanied by 6-8 keywords (free tags) which summarise the key themes of the paper.
    Authors should include 3-4 subheadings.
  • The authors are asked to follow older posts as a precedent for style, e.g. no footnotes, similar use of subheadings, a short title, short sentences and paragraphs.
  • All accepted texts are subject to editorial revision and English language proofreading.
