Submit a story

Nature Africa is not a peer-reviewed journal and will not consider primary research articles for publication.

We do welcome other submissions from the community, however.
Opinion pieces/commentaries: Scientists are welcome to submit ideas for articles that express their thoughts on research-related issues and topics. Nature Africa targets the science community, as well as a more general, non-specialized audience with an interest in science. Articles should use non-technical language that can be understood by people who are not specialized in the researcher’s field. Please summarize your idea in an e-mail to the editor, describing what your article will be about, why you think it’s an important topic for Nature Africa’s readers, and when you think you can submit it. Include your idea for an article rather than a fully written piece. Your article cannot have been published elsewhere. Nature Africa does not pay for commentaries by researchers.

If you are interested, contact the Nature Africa editorial team.
News and features:
  Nature Africa is always keen to support science journalism across the continent. Freelance journalists interested in collaborating with the portal can send news and feature story ideas by submitting a one-paragraph pitch to the editorial team. Please include two samples of your recent work.

More information here on how to write for us and how to make sure your pitch gets noticed. For more information about the work that we do and the kind of stories we are interested in, watch this workshop recording.

If we are interested in your article ideas, an editor will be in touch.
