Chalkdust can only thrive with your thoughts, ideas and curiosities. In the past we have had contributions from PhD students, professors, maths communicators and high school students. Soon this list could include you!
We publish articles about all areas of mathematics. To get an idea of what we look for, have a look at our previous issues. If you are interested in writing for us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch on Twitter or Facebook.
Deadline for issue 19
The deadline for articles for issue 19 is 2 January 2024.
Guidance for writers
- Length: Most articles in Chalkdust have between 500 and 2000 words, although we have been known to accept longer and shorter articles.
- Difficulty: Chalkdust has readers of all ages and mathematical backgrounds, and we like our articles to reflect that. We suggest that articles should not be too difficult for an enthusiastic first year undergraduate to understand (but the starting level can be much lower than this).
- Format: Our preferred format for article submissions is LaTeX or Word, but we will accept other formats as long as we can work out how to open them.
- Style guide: If you’d like to see our guide for how we copyedit your work, you can read the Chalkdust style guide.
We look forward to reading and sharing your ideas!
