Like to contribute to Chain Reaction?

  • We welcome articles, photos, poems, reviews ... though of course we can't publish everything that is submitted.
  • Feel free to contact us if you have an idea for an article.
  • Unfortunately we cannot pay for articles.


  • Please supply a high-resolution picture/graphic to go with your article, and a caption to go with the picture, and the name of the photographer/designer so they can be credited.
  • Please get permission from the photographer/designer to use the picture/graphic.
  • If there are people in the photo, name them if at all possible.
  • All images have to be at least 300dpi and the minimum size you want them to be on the page (cm x cm).

'More information' section

  • We like to include some key literature for readers who want more information, in a section titled 'More information' at the end of the article. It can include websites for key organisations, references to particular articles/books, etc.

Bio note

  • Please include a short bio note (1-2 sentences) at the end of your article. If you want to, include your contact details, website etc.

Word limits

  • A 'standard' Chain Reaction article is about 1200-1400 words with a couple of pictures - a double-page spread. Many articles are shorter. Each edition typically contains one or two longer articles.


  • Referencing is optional.
