Guidelines for blog writing

Blog writing is a fun and inspiring activity to facilitate the writing routine for young academics in the ethics and philosophy of technology. It can be used to write about one’s research topic, a paper one has in mind, or any other issue related to philosophy/ethics and technology. 4TU.Ethics Blog is a platform where such blogs can be peer-reviewed and published. Our aim is to target both academic and non-academic audiences to increase visibility and achieve a better public outreach.

Here are some guidelines for writing your blog:

    • Your blog should contain a catchy title and a couple of lines explaining the relevance of your topic as you see it.
    • You should be explicit about the core message of the blog early in the text.
    • There is a word limit for your blog (1000 words max).
    • You can write about i) your own research topic, ii) a paper you have in mind, or iii) any other issue related to philosophy/ethics and technology.
    • References to academic scholarship are welcomed, but should be used moderately.
    • You might want to use additional sources to better communicate your ideas, such as a:
      • film
      • song
      • news article
      • podcast
      • painting
      • photo
      • artwork
      • quote
      • personal experience
      • or anything else that can neatly exemplify and help to communicate your topic
    • Please indicate which tag fits your blog the best:
      • Opinion
      • Inspirational
      • Critical perspective
      • Reflection
      • Controversial ideas
    • Check whether the process and the outcome meet the following criteria:
      • Conciseness
      • Joyfulness
