Every weekday the newest Edited Entries to go into the Edited Guide appear on the Front Page, along with other links and information. You can visit Month of h2g2 to find out what new Edited Entries you have missed over the last month.

If you haven't written an Entry for the Edited Guide yet, have a read of the Writing Guidelines which contains lots of useful advice and information about what we are loking for in an entry for the Edited Guide.

Running the gauntlet of Peer Review, that's how some Researchers see it. However, it's not that bad if you follow the Writing Guidelines and read the information on the Peer Review page. Also try not to take constructive criticism personally, and remember that all suggestions from reviewers are well intentioned with the design of helping you achieve your aim of getting your Entry into the Edited Guide.

When you have written 25 or more solo Edited Entries and they have been accepted into the Edited Guide, you can claim a Solo-Written Edited Guide Entries Badge and will then be added to the Solo-Writen Edited Entries Roll of Honor
