our policies

Our aim is to create a safe space where everyone feels comfortable and respected. In order to do that, we will sometimes edit the stories we receive, and we might decide not to publish some of them. We ask you to respect our decisions (ocassionally, we might have time to engage in a conversation with an author/reader about our decision over a particular story).

We ask story-tellers to make sure that their stories do not contain any identifying information, especially when they are negative. Remember that the goal of this blog is to raise awareness about the experiences of foreigners in academia, not to publicly shame or denounce any particular individual or institution. We also ask contributors to avoid using abusive language.
