Am I eligible to submit a paper?
You are eligible to submit a paper if you are a graduate student in a scientific
field in the health sector, a PhD, a PhD student, an intern, a pharmacist or a
medical doctor. You are welcome to contact us if you are unsure regarding your status.
Can I choose any topic that I want?
We are focusing for now on research papers that bring information concerning an illness. You can however choose the illness, the disorder or the symptom that you want, as long as it fits your field of expertise or interest.
Can I choose any scientific paper that I want?
You can choose any scientific paper that focuses on an illness and that has
already been published in a peer-reviewed journal. This includes both research and review papers. We do encourage you to choose a study to which you have collaborated (you or your labmates are among the authors), but it is not a necessity!
What is the length of the paper I should submit?
Between 500 and 1000 words organized within 3 to 5 sections (NB :
introduction and conclusion are mandatory).
What format are you expecting?
We are expecting a word document named sci-dip-yourname2021-
nameofthedisease. The document should include an attracting title and a short summary (1-3 sentences) of your blog.
How much money will I get out of this?
It is too early for us to be able to estimate the amount of money that you will
receive per submitted article. We don't even know if our microdonation
approach will work. We can however guarantee you two things:
1) We will encourage readers to participate financially; this will be
done through our upcoming communication and awareness
2) We have added a customized option that allows readers to order
specific articles. In this case, the reader pays a certain fee and the
writer gets >85% of it. With the same logic, we have also added
consulting services to put readers in contact with writers. In both
cases, we prioritize contacting experts from our pool of writers for
these paid missions.
How do you accept or reject an article?
Our selection process is made by a hybrid editorial committee made of scientists and journalists.
