  • Include full citations and attributions for any claims, statistics, or sourced material
Editorial Process:
  • The Real Republic has a rigorous editing process to ensure accuracy and quality
  • Submissions will be thoroughly fact-checked; uncorroborated claims may not be published
  • The editing team will work closely with writers on substantive and stylistic edits to strengthen arguments
  • A willingness to have your work edited is required; if editing is not desired, please submit elsewhere
Content Guidance:
  • Provide insightful, novel commentary that goes beyond repeating widely-shared observations
  • Use past Real Republic pieces as a model for tone, rigor, and focus areas
  • Have a clear viewpoint and confidently argue your perspective using evidence
  • Draw insights from your expertise, proprietary research, data analysis, or first-hand experiences
