​The Conversation


The Conversation is an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. Homepage of The Conversation website

The Conversation’s audiences can range from the high hundreds right through to the millions. It has a creative commons policy which allows other media outlets to republish your piece so long as it’s verbatim and appropriately credited. 


 Their articles regularly rerun everywhere from the Guardian and the Washington Post to newer players like IFLS and Quartz. Writers are regularly approached by newspapers and broadcasters for follow-ups, and sometimes articles even lead to reference in parliament, mainstream book deals, and job offers.


 The Conversation focuses on three priority areas:

  • Timely, evidence-based analysis of issues making the news, such as new research
  • Timeless, plain English 'explainers' of complex issues
  • In-depth series or specials of regular hard evidence stories


You will work closely with the Scotland Editor and retain total control over your work. Nothing is published until you are happy completely satisfied and sign the article off.
