Submit a Guest Post

Thank you for your interest in submitting a guest post for Marine Science Today! Below are some guidelines for submissions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us using our Contact page, or by emailing us at:

Content and Quality Requirements

Marine Science Today accepts high quality, unique guest submissions related to the marine world. MST covers all sorts of ocean news and research, including marine biology, physical oceanography, conservation, policy, technology, and much more. Anything that is related to those topics or directly related to the oceans is considered good content for guest posts here. If you’re looking for inspiration, jellyfish, cute critters, and ocean extremes tend to be popular topics. There are no length requirements, but usually the guest posts are at least 300 words.

General Guidelines

  • Your post must be original and must have never been published before on the Internet. By submitting a guest post to MST, you agree to never publish the post anywhere else, including your own blog.
  • You can include one link in the byline, which will be displayed at the top of the post. Please include one to two sentences about you and your work or area of expertise. You may include one other link to your own content within the post (but no SEO keywords, please).

Image Requirements

A picture is worth a thousand words so, yes, we require at least one image to be sent in with the guest post. All images must be properly attributed and have been credited. Images should be a minimum width of 600 pixels. Please send the image as a separate .jpg attachment and include the image credit at the bottom of your post. The same guidelines apply for videos related to your guest post.

Editorial Policies

We will only edit the posts for minor grammar mistakes and may add contextual links to related articles on MST. If there are any bigger changes, we will run them by you first.


If your post meets the guidelines above, please email it to Please include “Guest Post Submission” in the subject line. You may include the post in the body of the email or as a .doc attachment. We will get back to you within the week. If your post is accepted, we will aim to publish the post within two weeks, unless otherwise noted.
