Science Connected is on a mission to review the latest scientific information and provide access to the greater public. We are investigating scientific research findings, translating them into language that everyone can understand, and publishing short articles that lay a solid foundation in the scientific method and feature comprehensive overviews of current research and discovery in the physical and life sciences.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers from a wide variety of scientific fields of study who want to write short-form summaries of recent scientific research. While some background in journalism is helpful, it is not necessary. We can provide guidance in science communication best practices. We identify new, exciting research in a wide range of fields from recently published work and distill the findings into an accessible format for non-experts. Each writer selects topics of interest to them and works with one of our editors to publish the work on our website. Writers choosing to contribute with us practice information synthesis, critical analysis, and the summarization of complex information. Science Connected volunteers are part of a community of fellow science communicators and expert advisors who enjoy benefits such as networking, free professional development, and grants.
If you’re looking to get involved in science communication, this is a great opportunity. No prior SciComm experience is necessary. Reach out to us by completing a short questionnaire and submitting your resume or CV.
