How you can contribute:

We welcome submissions for blog posts based on peer-reviewed research from canine science researchers and students.  

Following the format of earlier guest posts, researchers and students of canine science are welcome to submit short blog posts (~800 words) based on peer-reviewed research (your own or others). We're hoping posts will focus on research that has been presented at academic conferences or published in scientific journals.

Post should be accessible to a general, dog-loving audience. For Mia and Julie, this often means taking everything you know about academic writing and throwing it far out the window

Accepted guest posts will be shared with the established network of canine science enthusiasts that make up the Do You Believe in Dog? community.

If you'd like more information, send us an email to discuss writing a guest post: doyoubelieveindog@gmail.com

New to science blogging? We hear you:

Writing for a general (in this case, dog-loving) audience is a wee different from academic writing. New to it? Check out The Open Notebook, particularly the 'Elements of Craft' section. Also, excellent primers for new science bloggers at Science Borealis
