How to propose a guest essay for HBCU Research, CarverNext and MSI Science
We welcome essays from thought leaders and scholars at all levels, from grad students and postdocs at one end to senior researchers, CEOs and policy professionals in government and nonprofits. Our authors come from, or are in a position to influence, all STEM-related fields or enterprises, from all parts of the world.
Finished pieces should be approximately 7-800 words long (although longer essays are often accepted as well). They should be written in a conversational tone with minimal jargon—as though you were at a dinner party with intelligent, educated non-scientists who are curious about what you do and what you think about.
These essays should not be promotional in nature; you can certainly mention or describe your own work or the work of your institution or company, but that should not be the main focus. We look for fact-based arguments, and your affiliation and experience as described in a brief bio will establish your expertise.
The range of potential topics is almost unlimited: essays can be serious or tragic or funny or provocative or simply intriguing. Some of the many possible topics for a successful essay include:
To propose an essay, email a simple, one-paragraph description of what you’d like to write about and what your background/affiliation(s) are to our Chief Opinion Editor, Sandra Long, at slong@HBCUresearch.com or to our general inquiry email: editorial@HBCUResearch.com
