Welcome to SCIplanet! SCIplanet is a bilingual edutainment science magazine published by the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Through its printed and online publications, SCIplanet conveys science-related themes and topics to readers, primarily Egyptians, in an interesting and simple manner.

SCIplanet is constantly looking for freelance editors, who wish to fulfill their passion for science and deploy their writing talents. If you are interested, kindly send us an abstract of 100 words maximum, either in Arabic or English, covering a recent scientific topic, along with your CV, to: COPU.editors@bibalex.org; we will contact you shortly.


Editorial Guidelines

  • Contributors to SCIplanet are not paid. Contributions are offered by distinguished specialists who find contributing to the magazine worthwhile.
  • Freelance Editors are aspiring science writers, who must be Egyptian residents and are not staff members of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA).
  • Abstracts are normally reviewed within 2–4 weeks, after which the freelancer is informed if the submission is accepted or not. Accepted freelance editors are welcome to submit abstracts on subsequent occasions; if accepted, freelancers will be asked to submit a full feature or article by a certain deadline.
  • Freelancers need to adhere to the word count stipulated by the Managing Editor upon accepting the submission proposal and assigning the task.
  • Accepted submissions are published after editing and translation into Arabic/English through our Resident Team. Editing often entails amending linguistic errors, poor structures, repetitions or redundancies, disambiguation, rearrangement of sentences for clarity, reconfiguration of dates and measuring units to suit the BA publishing style, etc. Our Resident Team members check with the author only if significant changes are applied to the article.
  • Do not expect your submission to be published immediately; submissions are published according to the Editorial Team’s plan of publication and priorities.
