Who can submit?

You can submit if you have a peer-reviewed publication accepted and released. Scientists publishing in any scientific field (including psychology and the social sciences) can contribute!

How does it work?

How do I get started?

Summarize your publication using the template and rubric provided here. When you click the link, you can go to “File”, then “Make a copy” or “Download” to access the documents.

When you’re ready to write, use the program, StoryToolz, to check your paragraphs for readability. We are aiming for a 12th grade reading level.


What should I expect?

Science communication can be hard! If you are not familiar with science communication, you may struggle to share your research using accessible language. If you get stuck, that’s okay! Our volunteer editors will help you craft your article. Depending on your experience with science communication, you may receive extensive edits. The final product will likely look very different than your initial submission.

We have busy lives! None of our PubNavigator editors work full-time. We are students, parents, and professionals. Expect delays. There is a lot of back and forth between editors and the author. Sometimes life gets in the way and it takes a while to publish a PubNavigator article. On average, it takes 7 weeks to finalize an article.

Communication is key! Our editors should check in with updates every few weeks. If you don’t hear from your editor for a while and you have questions, feel free to reach out to us at
