The OxPol blog team are taking a break over summer. Watch this space for new topical political content, research and analysis from OxPol in the autumn.

Please note, during this period we are not accepting submissions, nor are we able to monitor the OxPol inbox. If you are interested in submitting a piece, please check our website again in October 2021, when we plan to update our submission guidelines and information on how to pitch an article to us.


We are always looking for new and interesting analysis and we would be delighted to discuss your draft posts or ideas.

Before submitting a piece, please refer to our editorial guidelines.

To submit your work, please email us at In your email, please include:

  • an abstract for your piece, no longer than 100 words
  • a draft of your article
