Science Outside Articles Guidelines

Science Outside wants to hear from you! Tell us a story about an experience you had while doing science outdoors! We want to hear from professionals and non-professionals, whether you’re the world’s leading expert on killer whale social dynamics, or you’re a citizen scientist who gets outside on the weekends to chase birds. Your title is not important, much more important is the story you tell. We hope to make scientists more relatable to the public, and to make the public a little more scientific.
