Blog submissions

Contributions to the SEN Policy Research Forum blog are welcome!


Our aim for this blog is to publish thought-provoking, short-form pieces that are research-informed, accessible, and which find points of contact between research and policy in relation to Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). We encourage discussion through comments on each blog post, or blog posts that respond to previously published blogs.


The pieces published here will be of interest to academics, students, policymakers, parents, education professionals – anyone to whom SEND policy and research is of interest. Blogs can be a great way for academic authors to reach audiences they might not otherwise have access to.


We welcome submissions all year round. Feel free to send in your contribution or contact us to discuss ideas and possibilities. Submissions can be either individual or collaborative pieces. Please indicate in the email if publication of your piece is time sensitive (e.g. you’re responding to a recent education-related news story).


Submit a Word document by email to with the title ‘Blog submission’.

All submissions will be reviewed and edited before publication. While we endeavour to respond to authors as soon as possible (particularly for posts that are time sensitive), please bear in mind that it may take a few days to review a submission.


Blog posts  will be:
