About Scipod

 

Our mission is to connect science and society.

A SciPod could be summarised as a ‘post print’ form of science communication, or an accessible plain language summary produced into the modern communication format of an audiobook or animation.

You do not need to look far to see humanity is currently on information overload. We live increasingly fast-paced lives, with so much more information to process, and our attention spans have become shorter. SciPod corroborates this phenomenon; we embody the YouTube and Audible generation and the way the modern world loves to learn at pace and learn while multitasking.

Watch our VideoPods and listen to our AudioPods to quickly learn about fascinating research taking place around the world.

I worked with SciPod to develop an audiobook that would communicate my research to wider audiences beyond academia. I enjoyed working with the SciPod editorial team and particularly enjoyed their script development and professional audio recording. I would recommend SciPod to my colleagues to help with communication to non-specialist audiences. 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

The increase in the number of views and downloads for my PLOS paper indicates that the SciPod campaign has been successful. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team on this project. My work to reconstruct statistics will continue and I will certainly consider SciPod in my next outreach project.   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.

I was honoured that SciPod contacted us about one of our recent papers, and I was delighted to work with them. The audiobook they produced will allow lay people and researchers to discover our research. The editorial process with SciPod was very easy and smooth and I look forward publishing our SciPod on our institutional website, and sharing with prospective research students. Listen to the SciPod

Creating and disseminating knowledge has long been part of the mission and purpose of academics. For us, the tradition has been to rely on scholarly journal publishers to do the dissemination part. However, with the ascent of social media and digitalization, it became clearer to me that dissemination should include digital platforms. So when I was approached by Science Diffusion to record a ‘SciPod’, I was intrigued and asked my friend and expert in the field if this was worth a try. Based on his encouragement, SciPod created my first audiobook in 2020 and I soon saw the readership of my paper increase. My knowledge was disseminated digitally to a larger portion of society and the conversation enriched. Working was the team at SciPod was the easiest thing! They are very responsive, professional, and flexible. The services they provide are well worth the cost. I have recommended them to other colleagues and just had a third SciPod published with them, about the issue of child labour in global supply chains. Listen to the SciPod
