Article guidelines

News pieces (400 – 700 words) Focus on an event (a discovery, a new law, a price) and tell it objectively. Explain why this event is relevant for the science field, who is involved. Is it a groundbreaking discovery or a discovery that reinforces what we already know in the field? News pieces are time-relevant.

Interviews (600 – 1000 words) Put into words a friendly conversation with an expert. Fact-check what the person has said.

Reports (800 – 1200 words) Give a personal perspective on a topic that interests you. It does not have to be time-relevant, but it should be original. Be aware and critical of previous articles on the topic.

If you have an idea for a column or want to pitch us a story, just let us know. We are open to new ideas.
