Write for Us! FEX 70 and 71 wants new authors

By Thomas Stubbs on 13 June 2023

Calling all prospective Field Exchange authors!

 Now that the dust has settled after the launch of issue 69 of FEX, we are welcoming new authors to send us submissions for issues 70 and 71 – both due later in 2023.

This year we are working on general issues, so we are welcoming article ideas from around the world on a variety of topics. Although we have a particular focus on fragile contexts and countries with high burdens of undernutrition, the editorial team are keen to leave things open for these issues and we are excited to see what you put forward. If you have a story to tell, research to flag, or programmatic experience to share with your peers then we would love to hear from you. It does not need to be a brand new idea - just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a topic that you've been thinking about for some time.

New times ahead for Field Exchange 

2023 represents an exciting time for our publication as we look to the future and plot our strategy for the years to come. There are several exciting changes that we are introducing over the next few issues, as we look to evolve and build on our reputation for peer-to-peer learning. Being ambitious in our outlook, we recognise the unique conribution and value of our authors voices, which are a central tenet of our work. We wish to hear from more authors, in more countries, sharing more diverse views from across the nutrition space. With this in mind, we hope to explore article ideas which are close to your heart. If it is important to you, it is important to us.

So, let’s explore your article suggestions in detail.

How we can help you write for FEX

We recognise that writing an article for any publication is a significant endeavour, but our editorial team are on hand to support you through your writing journey. We try our best to work flexibly and with the original article idea in mind. We recognise that all authors are juggling multiple responsibilities.

Above all, we are in the business of driving change, but we can only do this through sharing your ideas and lessons learned with the world. Your experiences contribute to moving the needle, no matter how slightly, towards improved nutrition for all.

Before you start a draft, look at our recent articles for insight into structuring and formatting your piece and ensure that your piece is written for a diverse and broad range of nutritionists and health professionals working across the world. Do also decide on what type of article you are writing as this will affect the length and tone. 

Each article normally takes between two and four months to develop, with less time needed between each draft. After your first submission, our team provides our thoughts and feedback, then we look to streamline your article with each version. By the time that we are ready for publication, both the authors and editors find that they have learned a great deal from one another. We find this to be one of the great privileges of our work, as every article throws up novel questions for us to explore.

If you are interested in writing with us, please do reach out to our team at fex@ennonline.net or, for more information, visit https://www.ennonline.net/fex/writeforus

We look forward to hearing from you!
