About SciPod

 

Making Science Accessible and Widely Available

SciPod is a post-print science communication platform that transforms complex scientific research into accessible and engaging audiobooks and podcasts.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn about science, regardless of their background or level of education. SciPod makes science more accessible by using plain language and by presenting research in a way that is easy to understand and engaging to listen to.

We live in a world where information overload is a real problem. We are constantly bombarded with data, and our attention spans are shorter than ever before. SciPod is designed to cut through the noise and make science easy to digest.

Our audiobooks and podcasts are perfect for people who are short on time or who want to learn about science while multitasking. They are also a great way to learn about fascinating research taking place around the world.

Listen to SciPod today and connect with science in a whole new way.

In the early stages of my academic career, disseminating research beyond academia was not prioritised. However, recognising the significance of social impact has become a cornerstone principle at POLIS: The Centre for Social Policy Research. SciPod emerges as a valuable avenue through which POLIS can achieve meaningful social impact. Over the years, I have encountered challenges in acquiring the necessary skills for effective outreach. Working with SciPod has been a rewarding experience, as they possess the expertise needed. The editorial process unfolded seamlessly at every stage, and I appreciated the ability to modify the article summary text and choose the voice for my audiobook. Listen to the SciPod

I worked with SciPod to promote and increase awareness of my research into the prevention of dyslexia. The SciPod team were great and I particularly enjoyed working with Nelly and learning about podcasting. I believe my research institute will also benefit from this, as it helps raise awareness of UVIC's scholarly reputation. I would work with SciPod again, and I recommended SciPod to my peers in creating awareness of their research. Listen to the SciPod

SciPod is a great platform to disseminate our research to a general audience, and to make bridges between science and society. I really enjoyed working with the SciPod team and the whole process was very smooth. I will personally use the audio on my social media and to show the NIH my efforts to make my research and its benefits known to society. Listen to the SciPod

I wanted to find a way to spread my scientific results on olive oil, a popular food commodity in my country, to a wider audience compared to the audience of scientific journals. After working with SciPod, the results of our study are now available to olive oil producers. Also, SciPod has helped us with one of our main commitments to our funding agency, in the popularisation of scientific results obtained using their funds. The SciPod team were very communicative, and their constant support made the production process as easy as possible for me. For these reasons, I would recommend SciPod to my peers. Watch the SciPod

I enjoyed working with SciPod, as they transform scientific language into simple ideas, and I particularly enjoyed their synthesis of my research paper. I recommend SciPod to all of my peers who want to communicate their studies in a simple and clear way. I will disseminate my SciPod on my personal webpage in my institution and research centre. My funding agency will be very pleased because I have communicated my research in a format that can be understood by non-specialists. Watch the SciPod

I decided to work with SciPod after hearing positive recommendations from a colleague. It seemed that an audiobook was a contemporary new way of spreading my research. The editorial team were excellent to work with and were particularly responsive to any correction requests. I look forward to SciPod’s expertise in disseminating my research through the internet in a way that I'm unfamiliar with, and giving a voice to the outcomes and the participants of my research. All in all, I would recommend SciPod to my peers. Listen to the SciPod

With its wide and varied audience, SciPod provides an excellent venue for scientific work to be disseminated and recognised. I was very impressed with the service SciPod provided and I was particularly impressed with the fast pace of work and accuracy in condensing my research. Through SciPod, my work will reach a much larger and diverse audience rather than a limited group of experts. It will also increase the visibility of my institution and help to solidify the scientific authority of my faculty. I look forward to working with SciPod again in the near future.

There is so much "white noise" in the world, particularly when communicating advances from scientific research, which makes it difficult to promulgate your discoveries and benefits that subsequently flow onto the society. A platform was needed to help solve this, and SciPod presented our research in an accessible format for the wider public, as well as non-expert colleagues. I enjoyed working with my SciPod editor Dr Catherine Deeprose, and especially appreciated her collaboration with my local media team. I have already posted my SciPod on LinkedIn and I will attach this to my various research and academic profiles. The timing will also be useful to ME/CFS campaigns in Australia, and elsewhere. I would recommend SciPod to those looking to cut through the noise. Listen to the SciPod

We were approached by SciPod informing us of their science communication service, and we thought it would be a good way to widen the audience of a research paper we’ve recently published. We really enjoyed working with SciPod and dealing with the editorial team was so easy and efficient, we couldn’t have asked for it to go any smoother. We are looking forward to reaching more people than just those interested in time use research, and we think our funding agency will appreciate our efforts of a new, accessible way for them and for the public to encourage wider engagement with our research.
