Ezra Klein called Project Syndicate "the world's smartest op-ed page."[3] It publishes and shares commentaries on a many topics, including: economic policy and strategies for growth worldwide, human rights, Islam, and the environment. It also offers monthly series about Africa, Europe, Asia, and Latin America, as well as to China and Russia. RealClearWorld called Project Syndicate one of the top five world news sites for 2012.[4]

Project Syndicate is a non-profit organization. Newspapers in developed countries support the organization with money. They are about 60% of The members. So, newspapers with less money or resources can publish their articles for free or cheaply.[5] Project Syndicate has also received money from the Open Society Foundation, The Politiken Foundation in Denmark, Die Zeit, ZEIT-Stiftung, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.[6]

Project Syndicate translates its columns from English into 13 languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Kazakh Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.[7]
