Topic Briefs for Journalists

To encourage and support coverage of the science of human phenomena, we’re producing a series of primers on subjects that have often been overlooked, censored or misrepresented by mainstream media and even mainstream science. These cover the history and current context, resources and contacts of a subject.

OPPORTUNITY: If you’ve got specialist experience covering a topic and would like to contribute a Topic Brief (paid assignment), please contact us.
