Writing for Times Higher Education

September 23, 2008

Features section

Our features are written by academics and university staff and also by our in-house team of specialist reporters. We are looking for lively essays about higher education and academic life. If you have an idea for a feature, please email a short summary (up to 200 words) of your proposal to THE.Submissions@tesglobal.com.  We will also consider completed articles. 

The length of each feature is decided by the Features Editor. However, as a rough guide, our features are usually 1,500-2,500 words.

Opinion section

Articles for our Opinion section are written by academics, university staff, policymakers and other contributors. Opinion articles set out a concise argument on a topical issue related to higher education or academic life. If you have an idea for an Opinion article, please send your suggestion to THE.Submissions@tesglobal.com. Opinion articles are usually about 750 words long.

If your feature or opinion article is accepted for publication, you will have an opportunity to check a proof of the article and to submit corrections prior to publication.

Blogs

We run a blogs section which carries 500-1,250-word articles. We are not prescriptive about topics and themes, although blogs must have some connection to higher education. You can email suggestions to  THE.Submissions@tesglobal.com.

Times Higher Education pays authors for work published in the magazine, but not for blogs.

Please note that we are a news magazine, not an academic journal. Opinion articles and features for the publication are written in a fairly informal style - and we do not publish footnotes.
