Independent, open journalism is a nonprofit, community platform for creating peer-reviewed journalism. Join us today.

How does work?

Our aim is to support quality journalism in the world. By opening up the way it gets made and inviting everyone to join in the process is creating a new class of journalism - a peer-reviewed, community-led, transparent and trustworthy style of independent journalism.

Members will see projects in development where they are invited to participate in reviewing work submitted by both professional and amateur journalists. Partnerships, sponsorships and donations from our members help us fund journalism in key areas selected by our editorial board. We have paid commissions open right now, and writers can submit their own personal work for review and publication, too.

As a nonprofit organisation we rely on your donations to make our work possible. Please join and help us change the way journalism gets made.
