We offer students, researchers, budding journalists or just curious citizens the opportunity to join our team. Whether you like to write, talk, edit, illustrate, or just chat about what you’re obsessed with, we would be happy to have you in the team.
There are a lot of different things you can do, whether you don’t have much time to spare or want to get really involved: try your hand at writing in the style of accessible journalism; make a short podcast or video (level 1); take scientific pictures or draw to illustrate the articles, spot typos (level 2); pitch subjects ideas, share original news, subjects and events with us (level 3).
“A la carte”
You can choose different level of involvement (see levels above) and be part of the spin team. As a “spinner”, you have a profile page one the website and an access to the “Newsroom “ and its contents: tutorials, the pitch zone, science communication resources.
You can also be a guest author. As a guest author you can give exposure to your work and thoughts and practice your writing skills without being a “full-time” member.
If you really don’t feel like writing but do have some materials (essays, dissertations, thesis) that you want to publish, please feel free to send it: we will be happy to edit and publish it under your name.
No previous experience is required
