The Quantum Computing Report, established in 2015, is the leading and most authoritative web site devoted to the quantum computing industry.  Articles posted in the Quantum Computing Report have been referenced or quoted in major national and international media outlets including the Washington Post, CNBC, Forbes, Scientific American, The Economist, Nature Magazine, The Guardian, TechCrunch, Fast Company, Gizmodo, and many others.  We have the highest quality reader base which includes quantum computing industry executives, venture capitalists, government policy analysts, U.S. Congressional staffers, enterprise end users, and researchers from academic, commercial, and non-profit organizations. The Quantum Computing Report is viewed by thousands of these users in over 115 countries worldwide.

Our goal is to provide these sophisticated readers with insightful data, analysis and news to let them know what is happening. We share our extensive understanding, both technically and commercially, of what is happening to provide a deeper analysis to our readers than what they might get from other media outlets that do not understand this complex technology and have not been following it for so many years.  We do not do hype nor do we simply regurgitate press releases that are issued by the various organizations working in quantum technology.

Over the past few years, quantum activity has increased significantly and is now growing at an increasingly faster rate. As a result, we are now looking to expand our coverage of the industry with this Contributor program.  We are looking for people who can provide analysis of quantum industry events, to provide our readers with a better understanding of the impact of new developments and how these developments may impact their own organizations or them personally.

With this in mind, we are looking to work with contributors who can write articles and report on the news to provide valuable insights on quantum technology to our readers.  The articles can be related to technical developments; there are many of these announcements made weekly and we are looking to have someone separate the wheat from the chaff and provide guidance on which ones are truly meaningful.  Or the articles can be about commercial trends and provide analyses of applications of quantum technology and user activity.

A contributor must have expertise in quantum technology or a field closely related to quantum technology.  We will pay a stipend to individual contributors based upon the length and topic of the particular article.  We will also accept contributions, but not pay a stipend, from employees of a quantum company for articles that provide viewpoints or analysis of various quantum topics as long as these don’t contain hype or overt advertising.  We will provide a byline for those who provide contributed articles and this recognition could perhaps be the greatest benefit for the contributors as it will give them additional visibility within the quantum community.

For those interested in finding out more about this opportunity or to submit a proposal for a contributed article, you can contact our Managing Editor, Doug Finke, at dfinke@quantumcomputingreport.com.
