I am going to write a feature article or a post

A feature article or a post is a great way to disseminate your research in your own words. To write a good article it may be an advantage to have an opinion on something, tell a good story or want to put something on the agenda relating to social affairs.
  1. Message. What do you want to say? What is your main point? Is what you want to say important and interesting for the ordinary man and woman and in what way?
  2. Target group. Who do you want to reach?
  3. Decide on a medium. Check any limits relating to length.
  4. Timing. Is the topic of current interest?
  5. Examples! Use yourself as an example, personal stories or people from your research.
  6. Composition. Start with the most important points. What is your main message?  Why should we listen to you? Discuss/problematize/diversify. Finish up by gathering the threads of you story.
  7. Keep it simple. Avoid foreign words.
  8. One at a time! Send the feature article to one editorial office at a time. Wait for feedback. Send a reminder.
