Article Brief & Submission Guidelines

We are working on an opportunity for Postgraduate students to publish articles as part of a news outlet. The format will be similar to “The Conversation” but allows for a wider range of contributors to also participate. Although we will focus on current events happening around the world (such as the COVID-19 pandemic) through a humanitarian lens, articles on your own research is also welcome.

We are happy to receive reflective pieces but it is very important that your article offers a constructive commentary.

Please follow the guidelines below when writing your article:

  • Article needs to be between 1500-2000 words in length
  • Must be written in a Word document, Ariel, Font size 12, line spacing 1.5, justified text
  • Use the position-essay template as a guideline for your writing
  • Title needs to be attention-grabbing
  • Although this is still an academic piece, it needs to be written for a wider audience to understand so do not use unnecessarily difficult words or jargon
  • Please use hyperlinks to articles, referencing and add a bibliography

Submission’s Process:

  • Once you have selected a topic, please submit your proposed topic for approval. Please try to complete the article within 1 week from receiving approval.
  • Once you have finished your article, please submit it via the website portal so that it can be language edited, proofread and designed before it is published.

The articles will be published on www.castup.co.za.

Article should be in the following format:

  1. Heading
  2. Author: Name and Surname
  3. Date

Should you have any questions, please contact Heather on heather.thuynsma@up.ac.za or Andrea on andreadutoit232@gmail.com.
