  • Your opinion article must be original and has never been published on any other platforms before.
  • Your opinion article must be grounded in solid research, supported by relevant evidence, facts, and data. You may use any of the two basic methods: field research (using primary materials from interviews, observations, visiting the scene, and your own knowledge) or library, academic, internet research (using secondary materials; graphs, charts, scholarly articles). You need to insert links to the sources in your article to allow our community readers to learn further. Only legitimate sources are accepted.
  • Our community readers are diverse, spanning from experts, practitioners, decision-makers, professionals, activists, entrepreneurs, to the general public. You are expected to deliver your opinion article in easy reading and popular writing style while maintaining the quality of the content.
  • Your opinion article should be within 700 – 800 words, including the title and subheadings. 
  • We highly recommended you use subheadings that highlight important points in your opinion article to help our community readers navigate your opinion more quickly and easily.
  • We recommend your opinion article to include: the problem you see and want to help tackle, solutions that you propose to address that problem, and supporting evidence/case study/fact/data that strengthens your argument.
