As a resource for readers of the EA Newsletter, I've created a list of other email newsletters that cover similar content (and have a perspective that is at least adjacent to common EA perspectives, even if they aren't explicitly focused on effective altruism).
If you know of a good newsletter I've missed, please add it in the comments!
Global health and development
Jeff Mosenkis (Innovations for Poverty Action) collects a weekly set of links and publishes them on the blog of development scholar Chris Blattman (subscribe here). These cover everything from experimental data to amusing anecdotes about the lives of researchers.
MIT’s Poverty Action Lab sends out several newsletters that cover research findings and lessons on applying them to government policy.
The World Bank offers many different newsletters on global development. Readers of the EA Newsletter might be especially interested in “Development Research” and “Development Impact Evaluation News”.
The Farm Animal Welfare Newsletter (written by Lewis Bollard, a program officer at the Open Philanthropy Project) covers topics related to reducing the suffering of farmed animals (regulation, meat substitutes, cage-free pledges, and more).
AI alignment and/or capabilities
The Alignment Newsletter (written by a team of researchers and practicing programmers) covers recent work on AI alignment, including original analysis and criticism.
ChinAI (written by Jeff Ding, a researcher at the Future of Humanity Institute) covers the AI landscape in China by translating articles and documents from government agencies, newspapers, corporations, and other sources.
Import AI (written by Jack Clark, the Director of Strategy and Communications at OpenAI) covers many facets of the subject, from technical progress to policy debates (plus, a weekly short story).
Meta (the EA movement, EA philosophy, etc.)
