Write For Us
dentalnotebook is constantly looking for new content to help its readers. Unfortunately, we can’t create content as quick as the demand and so we heavily rely on the dental community out there – students and qualified professionals alike!
We need you to get involved and help us create amazing content! At the end of this post, there is an Editor’s List of some of the content we are looking for.
Why should I submit content?
We know it takes time to put content together and we are grateful for anything you may send. You may wonder what you can get out of it:
- We can provide you with a certificate to recognise that you have contributed to a thriving community – you can stick this in your portfolio as evidence of contribution and dedication to teaching!
- We can provide you with statistics on the number of views of your content receives and are happy to provide references if you would like!
- The great feeling of helping the thriving dental community and passing on your knowledge to others – after all, we learn from each other and your content will help thousands of other dentists and dental students!
What can I write?
There are two main areas you can contribute to – notes and quizzes!
Notes can be on anything including core dental content and topics, or just experiences and developments in dentistry that you would like to share with others.
There aren’t many guidelines to follow for these. Please ensure:
- Content is clear and accurate
- Content is laid out with a basic structure – including a summary/conclusion if possible
- Ensure the content isn’t already published!
- Reference any images or additional content as required
Quizzes are helpful for testing your knowledge once swatting up! They’re pretty simple to create and a nice little addition to your CV! We are happy to accept a wide range of question formats, so get creative! Even if it’s just a single question then feel free to submit it!
For quiz questions, please ensure:
- The question format is clear – MCQ, single best answer, short-answer
- Questions and answers are clear – the correct answer is clearly indicated
- Information is current
- Any explanations for answers are provided
- The quiz/questions haven’t already been covered
When will I get published?
After submitting notes or quizzes, they will be reviewed and uploaded if appropriate. If there are any amendments, then we will get in touch with you so that we can make sure it gets published!
