The Education Magazine is a journalistic magazine and is therefore also produced by journalists. For that reason, you cannot deliver articles yourself. Unless they're opinion pieces. An opinion that deserves a podium? Respond to an article? Mail to education magazine @aob. Nl Please mention name and position. An opinion article in the Education Journal has about 700 words and consists of a clear argument, written down smoothly. We receive more articles every month than we can post and get in touch if we want to publish an article.


Letters are shorter than an opinion piece and we have more space for letters. Letters sent in can be sent to education magazine @aob. Nl Please state your name and place of residence. We are very happy with feedback from members. The editors learn from it and the post pages are read well. But also for letters, we receive more than we can post. We do not correspond about whether or not to place letters. The editors reserve the right to shorten letters and documents.


Suggestions for articles and tips for editors are greatly appreciated. Send it to education magazine @aob. Nl Please include a phone number. Because we also receive many emails with subject suggestions from people who want to sell something, we unfortunately do not get around to responding to all emails. If there is no immediate response to an idea or tip, it does not necessarily mean that we will not do anything with the submitted topic. Sometimes we first have to look for additional sources or we have a full schedule. Many suggestions are kept for a while.
