Visit our blog – Reef Bites!


Dear keen coral reef researchers,

Nine enthusiastic students have recently founded your ISRS STUDENT COMMITTEE. As part of its activities, a focused team are now running a student run blog where you can be updated on new and exciting coral reef science. This is your open opportunity to freely promote your science to a wide audience.

Maybe you wish to promote your recent publication with a descriptive summary, share stories/ pictures from fieldwork, or maybe request or share insights on a new research method. Whatever it is, we want to hear from you.

**This is a call for writers and editors**

Send us a sample of your writing (800 words maximum). We highly encourage including a few pictures or videos. We ask that the topic be coral reef related but otherwise write freely. We urge you to write short, concise pieces (400 words) but longer articles will also be welcome.

If you wish to be considered for the initial blog start up, please contact us by 5th December 2017. If you wish to volunteer yourself as an editor only, we would also love to hear from you! Please note, once launched, the blog will work on a rolling submission, and therefore there will be no subsequent formal deadlines.

Here are two helpful documents with guidelines for writing or editing blog post:

Please send your articles and pictures to:

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
