Do you want to bring your expert insight to a global audience?

Since 2017, Lund University is a member of The Conversation UK, a news site where researchers write about current events. This is a chance to add impact to your own research - but also to contribute to the thorny issues and big questions of our time. The Conversation is a non-profit collaboration between 90 universities in the UK, aiming to add a valuable research perspective to our understanding of news and current affairs. The articles are free for international media to republish under a Creative Commons license.

When you write for The Conversation you:

  • Are given editorial support from a science journalist who helps with the entire process, from honing an idea to editing the text
  • Get popular science writing tips
  • Can access statistics on number of reads, comments, and where the article is republished 

 For more information about writing for The Conversation, please contact Lotte Billing at Corporate Communications: lotte [dot] billing [at] kommunikation [dot] lu [dot] se


If you need help drawing up a communication plan or disseminating your research results, start by contacting a communications officer at your department or faculty.
