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 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
