LU researchers have the chance to meet up with editor Miriam Frankel to discuss article ideas for The Conversation.
The Conversation is an independent source of news and opinions coming from the academy and the research world https://theconversation.com/uk/who-we-are. This news service offers a new opportunity to you as a researcher to reach out internationally with your current research and expertise (not just news). The content, crafted by researchers, is often picked up by journalists and reaches several million readers in mainly English-speaking countries each month. It is free to join and you may use the material freely afterwards. You will have the help of an experienced science journalist to edit your text.
Meet the editor of The Conversation
Lund University is the first Scandinavian university member of the British The Conversation. This means that LU researchers have the opportunity to reach through the media millions of people worldwide with their research. On 20-26 September Miriam Frankel, one of the editors of The Conversation, will come to Lund.
Make an appointment
