Pacific Standard is Looking for ‘Dial-turning Stories’

Pacific Standard

Always on the watch for new ideas in the academic and think tank world? Journos with a passion for the sciences and a knack for storytelling are wanted at Pacific Standard, where 75 percent of the content is freelance-written.

The pub’s target readers are “influentials” who read The Economist, The Atlantic, Mother Jones and Wired, but editor Maria Streshinsky plans to differentiate Pacific Standard by focusing on the behavioral and social sciences. “In some ways, we’re going back to the core of what the magazine was started for: a conduit to academia, research and primary source investigation,” she explained.
