Call for contributions: write about what matters to you

A selection of front covers of previous editions of Immunology News

A mix of recent Society news, synopses of cutting-edge immunology research and feature articles showcasing what our members are up to, this magazine is the perfect opportunity to share your interests with your fellow members. As the BSI membership magazine, Immunology News aims to not only highlight how we’re supporting our members and representing immunology on a wider stage, but also amplify the voice of our membership.

We’re always looking for articles from our wonderful and diverse membership and we would love to hear from you. Are you interested in honing your writing skills and having a platform to start conversations about issues that matter to you? This is your chance! Whether you’d like to highlight your career path to others to provide encouragement for those in similar positions, especially if you’re working in industry or clinical settings, or you’re an expert on a topic that might inspire others, please get in touch.

We’re particularly interested in having a diversity of voices that represents our strong and vibrant community of immunologists from different backgrounds, career grades, immunology sectors and places around the world. Here are a few topics that we’d be interested in featuring, but if you’re interested in other areas, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

  • Equality, diversity and inclusion; for example, your lived experiences working in immunology or your involvement in activities promoting a fairer and more inclusive community
  • Sustainable science, such as practical steps you’ve used to reduce your carbon footprint or advice for others
  • Mental health and well-being strategies that support an improved experience within immunology
  • Your achievements; for example, if you have recently received grant funding, passed your PhD viva or accepted a new appointment
  • Creative pieces; for example, poems or drawings about immunology

We want to continue to provide content that is of interest to the breadth of our membership. In particular, we’d love to hear from members from: 

  • Different areas across the UK and beyond, especially north of London and including the devolved nations
  • The spectrum of immunology, both in terms of research areas and of sectors, such as industry and clinical
  • A range of career stages, such as postdocs and early career researchers
  • Underrepresented communities in science and those interested in building a fairer, more inclusive immunology community

Do you want to contribute to sparking conversations within our community through content that inspires, educates and engages? Get in touch to discuss your ideas and how they might fit in the magazine! Please let us know a bit about yourself and the topic that you would like to write about.
