Create a SciPod
Researchers are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibility to communicate more, especially to the public.
Moreover, given the significant change in the way information is disseminated and accessed, people want more from researchers, academic institutions, and industry than ever before.
It is now widely accepted that broader science communication is a fundamental aspect of a scientist’s career. While many do recognise this, it can be a challenge to do it effectively. SciPod offers a professional communication and dissemination service to support and enhance scientific research.
We make science understandable, enjoyable, accessible, and open.
Why communicate with SciPod?
If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s nobody around to hear, does it make a sound?
You have done the hard work in publishing your research. Now you need to make sure as many people as possible hear about it and. Draw extra attention to your work and build an interested community who can support your efforts.
From peer review to podcast. SciPod will transform your scholarly paper into a sharable audio layman summary.
With over 7000 new science papers being published each day, many are never read let alone cited. Using audio can help cut through the noise of over-publishing and help to communicate scientific research in an accessible language for a broad audience.
