We publish popular science articles targeted at educated lay people.  Our articles are more science heavy and in-depth than magazines like PopSci or New Scientist.

Submission is generally by invitation.  However, if you are doing advanced scientific research, you may send us a 3 – 5 sentence email query, and we will let you know if we are interested in a potential manuscript.

All articles must meet quality standards.  Our editors will help you refine your writing until it is suitable for publication.


  • 1,000 – 2,000 words
  • Include 2 – 5 pictures or graphs (this makes writing much more understandable)
  • Include citations as you would in a normal scientific publication
  • Writing should be understandable by a college educated lay audience
