Does the AHDC Research Blog seek submissions?

Yes we do! Our mission is to disseminate rigorous health design research findings to the Australian health design community. If you are involved in a research project we would love to talk to you about being a guest author with us.

Who are the members of our community?

Members of the AHDC community are interested in issues that impact on the design of Australian healthcare facilities. In particular, they want findings from research (preferably academic) that can help them make evidence-based decisions for their health design projects including those that are: new or greenfields, refurbished/renovated, large, small, metropolitan, regional or remote. Our members include:

  • architects, interior architects, engineers, and other designers
  • service planners
  • health planners
  • project managers
  • project directors
  • contractors
  • trade suppliers
  • project client representatives
  • managers
  • facility managers, and
  • others too numerous to mention!

What do I need to send?

  1. An article of around 800-1,000 words (can be longer if necessary, but not beyond 1,500 words).
  2. Information about yourself (100 words – with Twitter handle, if possible!) and a profile pic (although that isn’t necessary, we think that it is nicer if people can see what the author looks like). Also, if you have an ORCID, we are happy to add that, too.
  3. If you have one or more images that you’d like to accompany your post, please send them to us (as long as you have the right to do so, of course). If you don’t, that’s perfectly fine – we’ll source one for you.
  4. Send submissions to

  • We do not pay for articles.
  • We do not accept payment for publishing articles.
  • We do not publish ‘advertorials’ for for-profit organisations.
