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.

Show Off Your Brain Power at Pacific Standard

As a glossy dedicated to “academia, research and primary source investigation,” Pacific Standard wants fresh FOB stories that will make its readers think outside the box.

“We’d love to look at the work coming from the most innovative thinkers, those doing on-the-ground research, and how their findings will turn conventional wisdom on its head,” said editor Maria Streshinsky. Stories should be well-researched yet concise, as most freelance articles average around 1,200 words.
