Become an editor

Become part of the Exploring Economics Experience!

Do you want to scout and submit new material for our open-access and bottom-up e-learning platform?

Do you want to contribute summaries and academic commentaries and appear as an editor on the website?

Do you want to assess material suggestions and manuscripts and expand your experience in reviewing and mentoring?

Do you want to work with an international team of students and young scholars in different content-related working groups?

Do you want to create and write new material by yourself and publish it under your name on the website?

 Then become part of the Exploring Economics Experience!

The Exploring Economics Experience consists of a 4 months-commitment for the Exploring Economics project as an editor. You can choose your own level of engagement.

 Level A: Material scout

 The time necessary: 1-5 hours per month

As a material scout, you are feeding the  discover and  study section with videos, podcasts, online courses and other teaching material. You search, classify, summarize and comment new content, which is published with your name on the website. You can focus on a specific school of thought or topic of your interest that you want to strengthen on Exploring Economics. Find more information on what kind of material Exploring Economics features here.


 Level B: Editorial team member

 The time necessary: 1-3 hours per week

On Level B, you join our editorial team. Our editors are the beating heart of Exploring Economics!

Besides suggesting new material, they also review the material suggestions by material scouts. You can focus on a specific economic topic or perspective and discuss how you can find or create new material on this topic on Exploring Economics. Find more information here.


 Level C: Material producer

 The time necessary: depending on the project, at least 3 hours per week

You can produce essays, dossiers, wiki-articles or creative content and publish your material under your name on Exploring Economics. As in journal publishing, we conduct a professional review process – however, your text will be freely available on our e-learning platform and serve as learning material for our users. Find more information here.
