Science Progress | Where science, technology, and progressive policy meet

Write for Science Progress

Science Progress is a magazine and digital journal that serves as a platform for developing exciting new ideas to promote innovation in U.S. science and technology policy. It’s a place where scientists and technology leaders can interact with policymakers and communications experts to advocate for science and innovation in the service of the common good. We are confident that science, technology, and innovation underpin U.S. prosperity—economic mobility, universal health care, quality education, our national security, and our transformation to a low-carbon economy.

Our contributors include policy professionals, bench scientists, entrepreneurs, and academics from a variety of disciplines, graduate and undergraduate students, and science writers. These experts offer bold thinking on a wide array of issues in life sciences and public health, innovation, environmental and ocean science, science communication and education, and national security.

We welcome pitches for an original content on science and technology policy. If you’d like to develop original content with us, please submit your 1-paragraph pitch to

An ideal Science Progress article is 800 – 1,600 words in length (although longer can also work), with a strong thesis that explores in detail a specific issue in science or technology policy. We review every pitch submitted, and if it meets our publication needs we will contact you on an individual basis to work out an appropriate article length and editorial schedule, and to verify that you agree to the publication terms. Unfortunately, as an education-focused 501(c)3 organization with a limited budget, we are not able to offer payment for pitches or pieces submitted through the website at this time.
