We cover the breakthrough technologies and scientific discoveries that are shaping the future of humanity. We aim to engage our readers with accessible and interesting articles covering the very latest in rejuvenation biotechnology research.

Currently, we rely on a team of full-time and volunteer writers to help deliver an engaging experience to our readers and deliver our day-to-day editorial needs. As a non-profit organization, we are not currently seeking paid contributors, though we are always happy to have people interested in science contribute their knowledge.

If you would like to join our volunteer writing team and write about rejuvenation biotechnology (even on an irregular basis), you are welcome to submit an article to our editorial team.

What’s in it for you?

  • Your work will be published on our website and shared across our social media network, reaching thousands of readers.
  • Your own author profile and picture on our website.
  • A link to your website, Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin.
  • The opportunity to join the writing team and get involved in advocacy and activism activities.
  • Our thanks for supporting rejuvenation research and helping to keep the audience informed of scientific progress.

What we are looking for

We are seeking people who have a passion for science and want to help us engage the public and start conversations about the possibilities of future medicine and the world of tomorrow. If you are a researcher, an advocate, an activist, a lobbyist, or perhaps an expert on medical regulatory matters, we encourage you to submit an article.

We are typically looking for articles between 600 to 1500 words. They can be focused on specific research publications or scientific discoveries, or they can focus on the ethical and social issues that surround the development of rejuvenation biotechnology. We also welcome commentary on regulatory matters in the medical world. All pieces should be scientifically grounded and include credible references and supporting data where appropriate to support any claims; please use APA format when citing sources.

A few tips

  • Read our articles. We suggest reading our articles first to get a feel for the style and format before starting on your piece.
  • Let us know if your article is timely in any way in the subject line of your email.
  • Choose sources carefully. Rely on primary sources as much as possible. If you quote someone, cite a statistic or refer to research, make sure you cite your sources in your list of references at the end of the article.
  • Proof your article. If a piece is filled with typos, poor punctuation, and factual errors, we will reject it.
  • Be original. We ask that all submitted articles are original work that will be exclusive to our website. Plagiarized work is not acceptable, nor is previously published material with just some minor tweaks made to it.

The Process

If you are interested in contributing an article, send the final draft of your piece, including a proposed headline, a short bio, a photograph, and links to other articles you have published to writing@lifespan.io.

The editorial team will review your submission and get back to you if it is something that we are interested in publishing. Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, contributors should hear from us in 1-2 weeks. If you have not heard from us after two weeks, it is likely that your pitch was not successful.

Should we accept an article for publication, it is likely to need revision by one of our editors; you will have the opportunity to view the final piece before publication to ensure you are happy with it. Once satisfied with any changes, you will be informed when the article is due to be published.
