Since effective altruism is still a nascent field, lots of existing information has yet to be published. If there's some new topic you'd like to learn about and/or share with others, interview a relevant expert and write up the interview. They might be able to tell you about a field of knowledge, a problem area, or their experience.
To get started, check out Nick Beckstead's advice on doing prioritization research in this manner. Then, to get a sense of how to do this well, check out examples of expert interviews about global poverty interventions, earnings maximization, tech entrepreneurship, and personal success. Once you've written up your interview, ask the interviewee to review the piece then share your findings on the EA Forum. (h/t Richard Batty)
