Our team of passionate writers are involved in numerous areas of academia and publishing, from archivists and guest academics, to Gale’s own editors and current student ambassadors. All are keen to share valuable content such as their own study tips, or how to cope with mental health as a student, to essay advice direct from a university Lecturer. And along the way, many of our writers are unearthing fascinating primary sources that have never previously been studied!
