Article Submissions

The T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies (CNS) is committed to increasing awareness of the extraordinary impact that food has on the health of our bodies, our communities, and our planet. We are always looking for evidence-based content that is compelling and educational; we also love featuring inspirational wellness journeys and transformative stories about plant-based health.

If you are interested in submitting an article for our website, please carefully read all of the following guidelines first. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in your submission not being published.

GUIDELINES

  • Length – article submissions should be between 500–2,000 words. If you are interested in covering a topic that exceeds this suggested limit, you might want to consider splitting your submission into a series of articles.
  • Citations – if you’re unsure whether a claim in your article requires a citation, chances are it probably does! All scientific claims require citation. Whenever possible, choose primary sources (e.g., peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals) over secondary sources (e.g., a newspaper article about scientific research).
  • Avoid Reductionist Topics – many decades of research, including the work of T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., indicate that nutrition (and health broadly) is best understood within the context of wholism. Learn more about wholism here. Although research on individual nutrients can advance our understanding, nutrition as it operates in the body is far more complex than individual reactions studied in isolation, and the effects of dietary lifestyle change are best understood within the wholistic context. It is important that you keep this context in mind when writing articles (either positive or negative) about individual nutrients or foods. Examples of overly reductionist topics that undermine this wholistic approach to health include:
    • “The Top 5 Supplements for Increasing Testosterone Levels”
    • “Which is the Healthiest Leafy Green Vegetable for Your Kidneys?”
    • “Why You Should Be Using Allium Vegetables to Counteract the Phytic Acid in Whole Grains”
    • “The Top Additive in Processed Foods That You Must Avoid”
  • Refrain from Making Sweeping Personal, Religious, or Political Judgments – although certain types of articles lend themselves very well to a personal narrative, you should try as much as possible to not make assumptions or judgments about viewpoints that are not your own. Likewise, although politics are an important part of the food system—and therefore may feature in an article, when relevant—any political claims should be referenced. CNS is dedicated to providing logical, evidence-based content, not a platform for ideological attacks.
  • Example Articles – it may be helpful to familiarize yourself with previously published articles to get an idea of the type of content and style that we are looking for:

Note that articles about specific nutrients and foods are welcome, so long as they do not lose sight of the wholistic context that encompasses nutrition. CNS does not advocate for the heavy use of supplements, the idea of food-as-supplements (even whole foods), or the sensationalized framing of individual food components. Context and relevance are key.
