Guidelines for contributors

Editorials

An editorial piece is an external contribution which comments on current political/technical/social developments according to a particular theme (Water, Nature, Energy, Transport and Circular). Editorial pieces are aimed at a general audience.  

REVOLVE welcomes editorials from think tanks, researchers, opinion makers, institutions, national and international policy makers, civil society, non-governmental organisations, and private interest groups. Authors must be transparent regarding who they represent. 

To qualify for publication, editorials must take a stance and preferably make recommendations for improvement/action.  

Lobbying pieces which only self-promote an organisation will not be published as editorials. An editor’s approval is always needed before publication. 

Editorials should be well-written and grammatically correct and between 600-800 words in length. Poorly written and excessively long articles will not be published.  

Features

A REVOLVE feature article is a long-form (1500-2000 words) story that focuses on an event, project, place or person in great detail. The topic of the feature must be appropriate for REVOLVE’s main themes: Water, Nature, Energy, Transport and Circular 

REVOLVE welcomes features from freelance journalists and writers. REVOLVE editors select the best features for publication in REVOLVE’s quarterly print magazine.  

To qualify for publication on REVOLVE’s website or magazine, your feature must have a beginning, a middle and an end. This means a headline, an introduction (which is also a synopsis of your feature), a main body of text (with subheadings) and a conclusion.  

Lobbying pieces which only self-promote an organisation will not be published. 

Photo essays

Submit a photo essay for consideration as the VIEWS feature in the quarterly print magazine. Photo essays must present a coherent essay in approximately 10–20 photographs, and be appropriate for REVOLVE’s main themes: Water, Nature, Energy, Transport and Circular. Your images must be viewable online, and all the images submitted must be 1080 px shortest side maximum. 

DISCLAIMER:

REVOLVE reserves the right to edit articles and suggest changes—but will never print the final article without your approval.

*All contributed images and content are subject to the Creative Commons and may be reproduced or reused on print and digital platforms with appropriate credit. Therefore, all provided images must be labelled for reuse and should not infringe any terms of use or copyrights.
