GLBNA welcomes original content by knowledgeable journalists, researchers, academicians, and experts in the following areas: freshwater resources, climate science, human migration, and the Great Lakes Basin. Relevant content includes book reviews, news analysis, and opinion pieces.

GLBNA acquires exclusive rights to all content that we publish. We do not reprint material that has already been published, unless you (a) substantially revise and adapt it specifically for GLBNA, and (b) grant exclusive rights to GLBNA to publish the adapted version.

We do not shy away from controversial or innovative ideas. Your personal bias may be apparent, but you must acknowledge and respect dissenting viewpoints.

If we publish your articles and/or reviews, we will be happy to include your profile with relevant information including your personal or professional website, contact information, and/or links to previously published works.

We reserve the right to accept or reject submitted material, and to edit (in consultation with the author) accepted material for grammar, punctuation, journalistic style, and length. Please query first — that is, send a proposal to the editor before submitting material.
