Much of the research that effective altruists focus on and generate is new and minimally conducted, if it has been at all. To promote quality research and good epistemic standards, individuals and organizations provide one another with feedback on their thinking and work. This includes vetting things that an EA organization wants to write, especially outreach and educational things, such as if their lessons made sense and what counter-arguments they missed. This sort of work frequently requires personal relationship with the individuals and/or organizations, and a firm grasp on EA or the specific field.
If you would be interested in lending your understanding, determine the means by which each organization takes feedback and contact them there. (Check out the list of EA-identified organizations.) Most of the time this will be informal communication through their contact information or in the comments sections of their blogs.
