If you take pleasure in reading ZME Science, want to share some knowledge, or have something you want to raise awareness on, there’s no reason why you can’t join the fun, right? What we want to see is people who are serious and enthusiastic about what they are writing on. If you work in science/tech/environment, or if there’s a small study you performed, that’s even better, but as we say, it doesn’t have to be rocket science.
What the advantages are
- All of our collaborators get recommendations and credentials from our behalf, for use at University (for journalism students) or a future job position as a writer – scientific or not. Publishing on ZME Science will be a tiny boost to your CV.
- You’ll be joining an energetic team of open minded and knowledgeable people (we like to think so), who are very passionate about any scientific field
- You will reach an audience of over 20,000 people a day and over 1,000,000 each month.
- You can write from anywhere in the world, even the comfort of your own bed. After all, we’re just an online publication, so there’s no need to drop by our office or anything like that.
- You will get access to scientific studies and journals.
- You might get the chance to attend conferences or symposium, and enter educational, scientific or environmental programs.
- You could receive products for review (gadgets, books, games).
- Solid knowledge of the English language
- Knowledge about the topic for which you are writing
- Enthusiasm and commitment
Previous experience is not a requirement but is definitely a plus.
Our policy on guest posts
We believe that guest posts are a great way to reach out to a new audience, make a name for yourself or add something juicy to your online CV. However, we are aware that many people are trying to use guest posts as a way to promote their brand and make money by linking to products or services.
We don’t allow this!
Again, we don’t allow any commercial links in our guest posts! That means that you can only link to scientific journals, science articles, Wikipedia or any highly reputable sources. Your “money links” won’t be in the body of the article, and they won’t be in the author box. End of story.
So while we encourage any knowledgeable and passionate people to write and share their knowledge with our audience, please don’t waste your (and our) time.
If you are another blogger and want to make a name for yourself, the conditions above apply. A link to your blog might be allowed, but it will be no-follow, in compliance with the Google terms.
