One of the most popular medical blogs on the web, Science Based Medicine reaches over 3 million people monthly, which means your posts really have to reach a high standard for acceptance. The site’s editorial team consists of physicians who will closely vet any work submitted and sources used, making this an option for the medical industry professional above all else. An emphasis is placed on original writing and authors have some flexibility in terms of their writing styles, meaning humor and creativity are encouraged. However, the site specifically bans promotional links of all kinds and encourages writers to read its current content to ensure they offer the correct tone and subject matter. No specific word count is provided, however, it is not uncommon to see posts going beyond 3,000 words so detail tends to be valued over succinctness.
