Submission Guidelines


We welcome all members of the scientific policy community and Johns Hopkins University to submit articles for our blog. Article guidelines are below.


 

What makes a great blog post?

Articles that focus on timely science policy topics are the most likely to have a great impact. The most impactful articles, generally, find a specific angle and have one clear message.

If you have any doubts about the fit of a topic on our blog, please send us an email with the topic, so that we can give you feedback before you go to the trouble of writing a piece.
