Guidelines for submission

Boiling Point looks for articles which are written in English, preferably using clear and plain language, and which can be used by other people in their own work. Do not be deterred, however, if you are not used to writing – it is the information that is important – we will review articles, edit them and return them for your approval prior to being published.

Theme articles

Each edition of the journal typically contain four to six full length theme articles which can include research papers and programme reports that are relevant to the theme topic. We encourage you to submit articles on your work on any of the above-mentioned themes at any time of the year. Each edition also contains a related Toolkit. If you are interested in contributing to these, then please contact us on the email address at the end of this page.


If you feel you or someone from your organisation should be interviewed on your work in facilitating access to energy for households in developing countries, please contact us. All interviews will be published on the HEDON website and the best will be selected for publication in the Viewpoints section of Boiling Point.

General articles

We welcome submission of general articles at any time, which can cover any topic. Examples include project/programme updates, technical papers, book/report reviews, and conference and workshop reports. Please note: technology based articles should be focused on the real life application of proven technologies.


Would you like advice from experts on an aspect of your work in household energy? Contact us with your questions and we will strive to direct you to those who can help. Questions we feel are relevant to a wider audience are selected for publication in the Helpline section of Boiling Point. In the past, these have included dilemmas regarding marketing, emergency relief and enterprise development.

Guidelines and submission dates

We are now accepting articles and front cover photo submissions for BP69: Enablers to Cookstoves. Deadline for submission is 14 August 2016 (visit www.hedon.info/boilingpoint).
