About Project Syndicate

Since 1994, Project Syndicate has provided readers with original, engaging, and thought-provoking commentaries by those who are shaping the world's economics, politics, science, and culture. Our mission is to render complicated ideas in a language that educated readers everywhere can use to make informed choices, while providing a platform for the world’s foremost statesmen, policymakers, intellectuals, and activists to reach a global audience without public relations and political hype.

Project Syndicate’s members include more than 500 newspapers and other publications in 154 countries, and our commentaries reach 300 million readers. Our unique non-profit content-distribution model enables us to reach newspapers and other media in the developing world that commercial syndication services ignore or neglect. We offer outlets throughout developing Africa, Asia, and Latin America free or subsidized rights to our commentaries, ensuring equal access to ideas and debates that help people everywhere understand and respond to the forces – and risks – shaping their lives.

Submission Guidelines

Project Syndicate welcomes unsolicited submissions, representing a broad range of academic and professional fields and points of view, by qualified authors from around the world. Prospective contributors are encouraged to acquaint themselves with Project Syndicate’s offerings when considering whether their submission addresses a relevant topic.

Authors should also note that Project Syndicate’s mission is to provide its member publications with original commentary that analyzes, rather than reports on, current global events and trends, thereby giving deeper meaning and context to their coverage. Contributors typically have demonstrated expertise on, or related to, the topic they are addressing.

Prospective contributors should adhere to the following guidelines:

- The submission must be in English, accompanied by a brief note containing a short description of the commentary and the author’s qualifications.

- The submission must be exclusive to Project Syndicate. Submissions that have been published elsewhere in any form and in any language, in print or online, will not be considered.

- The submission should be made directly by the author or author’s staff. Public-relations representatives are requested to advise their clients accordingly.

- The ideal length of a Project Syndicate commentary is 800-900 words. Submissions must not be shorter than 700 words or exceed 1,000 words.

- Project Syndicate commentaries are aimed at a knowledgeable non-specialist audience. Submissions may not contain footnotes or endnotes, though they should include, wherever possible, URLs for cited data, quotes, speeches, reports, or academic research.

- Accompanying images, graphs, or figures should be at least 540 pixels wide and must be submitted in JPEG or PNG format. We prefer to create graphs in-house, so inclusion of raw data sets is recommended. We reserve the right not to use such materials.

In some cases, submissions are accepted for online-only use. These commentaries appear on Project Syndicate’s website but are not syndicated to our member publications.

Authors whose submissions have been accepted are notified as quickly as possible. All questions regarding an accepted submission should be directed to the relevant Project Syndicate editor. Authors are requested not to contact Project Syndicate’s Prague office regarding the status of an accepted submission.

Unfortunately, we cannot respond to every submission. Prospective contributors who do not receive a reply within five days should feel free to submit their manuscript elsewhere.
