Who should write for PERbites?
We’re looking for graduate students, post docs, and faculty who are interested in sharing research to the broader physics and science community. Interested writers should have strong communication skills and a desire to make research accessible to all.
Undergraduates with research experience in physics education or teaching experience are also encouraged to write for us.
What if I don’t fit into one of the above categories?
Don’t worry, contact us anyways. We’re glad to hear from you and will work with you to see how your idea might fit with what we do!
As we continue to grow, we plan to start to include stories about physics education researchers and instructors who have used physics education research inspired activities in their course. We are also interested in expanding outside of physics education research and into the broader Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) literature.
What are the benefits of writing for PERbites?
Great question. Part of doing science is being able to communicate results. Writing for PERbites is a great way to develop those skills. In addition, it’s a great way to keep up with current research in physics education and for early career researchers, to gain exposure in the PER and DBER communities.
What is the commitment?
We ask that you write ~1 article a month but we acknowledge everyone’s situation is different, especially when it comes to service work and volunteering. We’re happy to work with you based on your level of interest.
