Article guidelines

The submitted article can be based on primary research, however it should not be an already published piece of work (to avoid copyright issues).  It should be something that wouldn’t look out of place on a science blog, so an editorial / review-type piece is favourable.  It should be at least 1000 words long.  If it is newsworthy or relating to something currently in the popular press it may appeal to a wider group of people.

Frequently asked article questions

“Is my thesis proposal suitable for the article?”
A thesis proposal isn’t appropriate as it isn’t an editorial article

“Can I use a paper I have recently published?”
You cannot use a paper as this is published work and there may be copyright issues.  A review of several publications however would be acceptable

“Does the article have to be based on my own research?”
“Does the article have to be related to products that Axol sells?”
No to both; the article can be based on any life-science subject

“I already have my PhD, can I apply?”
“I have just submitted my thesis, can I apply?”
In order to be eligible you must be registered with your institution as a PhD, Masters or undergraduate student for the 15/16 academic year.  If you are awarded your PhD or degree before June 30th you will not be eligible for the award.

“Can medical students apply?”
To be eligible you must be studying for a life-science degree.  Medical, veterinary and pharmacy disciplines are not eligible for this award.

“Can I apply for this and your travel awards?”
Yes, there is no restriction on the number of awards we offer that you can apply for

“Is there any fee or payment required?”
No.  We never ask for any money or credit card details.
