The SOAS History Blog is a SOAS University of London initiative, is hosted by SOAS IT Systems, and is officially run through the SOAS School of History, Religions and Philosophies. We ask that our contributors be familiar with the following community policies and guidelines.
Academic Honesty, Plagiarism and Ethics
The SOAS History Blog is primary an academic initiative aimed at showcasing the work and research of SOAS Students, Staff and Alumni. We follow the same principles for submissions as students are asked to use for their assessable work, as laid out by the School Statement on Plagiarism. We follow the same guidance for ethics as laid out by the Research Ethics at SOAS policies and accept works for publication that meet this standard.
The SOAS History Blog collects information for the mailing list and contributor details in accordance to the SOAS Publications Information Compliance guidelines.
SOAS University of London IT Policy
As a platform hosted by SOAS University of London IT systems and run by SOAS Staff members and students, contributors to this blog are asked to observe the SOAS IT Policy.

SOAS Student Union Safer Spaces Policy
The SOAS History Blog is officially run through the SOAS School of History, Religions and Philosophies. Contributions are welcome and encouraged from across all Schools and Departments, as well as from Alumni. This blog is both an ‘outward facing’ platform to showcase SOAS Student and Staff work and research, and an ‘inward facing’ platform to celebrate and recognise the SOAS community. Given the community orientated nature of this blog, as well as the various events our team promotes and runs, we are committed to ensuring Student and Staff safety and inclusion. As such, we ask that contributors to our platform and to our events follow the SOAS Student Union Safer Spaces Policy, as we believe that this policy reflects the broader SOAS community standards. This includes a commitment to EDMI focus and the ongoing effort to Decolonise SOAS.
