Who are the creative geniuses behind HIAS?
Can anyone contribute to the content on HIAS?
Yes! We welcome content from scientists at all career stages including undergraduates and retirees. If it’s something you’ve already written, you can send it through the submission portal. If it’s something that’s already available on the internet—whether written by you or someone else— send us the link and we’ll take a look. If it’s something you’re thinking about writing for HIAS but want feedback before doing that, feel free to send us your thoughts and we’ll get back to you.
What if I want to submit something to HIAS on a subject that has already covered?
Our goal is to make HIAS a site that presents multiple viewpoints. That means we’re generally fine covering the same question or topic multiple times. And if there’s some overlap with what’s currently on the site, that’s fine. Chances are good that your perspective will differ somewhat from what’s already posted, and reinforcing the “common wisdom” or putting it into different terms can be useful to readers.
Some of the content on HIAS seems to contradict other content. Why is that?
There are likely as many opinions about the topics covered by HIAS as there are scientists. The fact that some of the perspectives may be somewhat at odds with other perspectives is a strength of the site. Just see what resonates with you, triangulate as needed, and apply what you think is valuable to your own career.
