Share your insights from the front lines of behavioral science

We’re interested in articles that get us thinking about human behavior to better understand our decisions and why we do what we do. We look for articles that do one or more of the following:

  • Take a deep dive into today’s most pressing issues in policy, government, health and education through a behavioural science lens
  • Provide insight into current events through behavioural science
  • Examine behavioral science insights in an engaging and useful manner
  • Bridge the gap between research and application by showing readers how they can use behavioural insights in their own lives

Explore our insights section and think about which type of article you want to contribute. Also, consider which one of our categories your article would be relevant to.

When you’re ready with your idea, please send us either a pitch or an article draft as per the instructions below.

In order to be considered, your article must be unpublished and created specifically for The Decision Lab. Once submitted, articles are subject to editing by our staff.
