Become Involved in Communicating Earth Observations

Earthzine is a nonprofit online publication dedicated to Earth observations. Our goal is to foster community among a diverse group of Earth observers and Earth data users while providing a pathway that leads to a more informed public.

Contribute an article

In addition to staff-written articles, we publish contributions from researchers, educators, students, and members of the global community interested in Earth observation and the application of Earth information.

Writing for Earthzine offers an opportunity to hone your writing skills and receive guidance on effective communication, while sharing an Earth science story about which you are passionate. We welcome single-time contributions and inquiries about becoming a regular volunteer contributor.

All stories must have a clear connection to Earthzine’s scope: Earth observation includes research, data, or information gathered to improve understanding of all spheres of our planet: from deep sea measurements to citizen science or remotely sensed images gathered by satellite. A list of upcoming Quarterly Themes and Monthly Focus topics can be found here and greater detail about the format and style of Earthzine articles can be found in our Writer Guidelines.

For further information about becoming a volunteer contributor, please contact Senior Science Writer Elise Mulder Osenga at

Become an Editor

In addition to article contributions, we invite highly qualified individuals to volunteer as Associate Editors and Guest Editors to guide the development of Earthzine’s technical content and outreach. Editors help ensure that our technical content offers accurate representations of developments in current Earth observation science and provides an opportunity to help promote interdisciplinary communication among the geosciences. Please explore the Reviewer Guidelines and contact Editor-in-Chief Paul Racette at for more information.
