Media interest in research has never been greater due to the global impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and Climate Change, among other topics. How research is communicated varies from an international scale down to local level, as also reflected in the quality of coverage from in-depth news features to poorly referenced, click-bait churnalism. Join us for this online seminar that is taking place on - Tuesday 27th June.
This seminar is aimed at journalists, librarians, publishers and communications professionals in universities and publishing.
