Guidelines for contributors to the Curmudgeon Corner
This is not a formal journal article but an extended, passionate, and well informed critique and Letter to the Editor written in an informal style.
1000 word target, maximum 2000 words.
No abstract, keywords, diagrams, footnotes and reference section are needed; if you feel references and footnotes would be essential to your argument, please limit yourself to one or two that would provide the richest supplement for the non-specialist.
Express why you care about this topic. Avoid writing burdened by academic language. Use active voice in place of passive voice. Be succinct. Be authentic, credible, and compelling.
