  3. 3. Author Biography | Atiqa Ijaz Khan 2 WRITING AN AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY: JOURNAL Author biography is important as it impacts the reputation directly. 1. MAIN POINTS: IN A GLANCE Although, different publications and companies have varying setups and outlines for writing a biography. But following are few main points that should be considered while writing a biography, or for a journal:  Write in a Third person tone.  Write for your readers, not for yourself.  Portray your credibility (by your qualification, in a refined form, so they know why they should trust you).  Explain what you do (job, academics etc.).  Be relevant to your concern field.  Add little history of yourself and achievements (depending upon for a book or a journal).  Keep it short and precise (unless stated).  Write it in professional way as that of in your field. 1.1. GENERAL STEPS Few things are generally included while writing a biography for a journal:  Author full name  Qualification and academic history  Current status and position (technical and academic)  Awards and achievements  Research field/article interest  Picture (if required) 2. WORDS COUNT Although, it is limited or according to the demand. But generally:  Short: 35 – 50
  4. 4. Author Biography | Atiqa Ijaz Khan 3  Medium: 100 - 200  Long: 200 - 400 3. IMPORTANT POINT 1. It is always good to observe the biographies by other authors in your respective journal/discipline to know the acceptable style for them as well as readers. 2. Keep the writing within: a. Context: Journals, conference proposals, publications, books, institutional websites, portfolio, academics, professional websites, etc. b. Audience: teaching staff, students, outside from your field, academic committee members, professional, clients etc. c. Purpose: Why you are writing this particular biography. 4. AVOID UNNECESSARY INFORMATION There are few things that should not be a part of an author biography or atleast avoided unless required:  Don’t write too long unless it is stated (may be for books, portfolio etc.).  Much older books you read or awards.  Don’t add irrelevant achievements and stuff.  Don’t add extra personal details.  Any previous rejection.  It is not necessary to inform readers always, if this is your first time, unless required. 5.
