Speaking of Research have regularly had guest posts. Scientists have different fields of expertise, and who better to get to write about a scientific field than an expert in it. The most powerful voice on this issue continues to be that of the scientist.
We need more scientists to explain their research. Why do they use animals? How do they look after them? Why can’t you use cell cultures or people? What do you hope to find out?
We call out to our followers and supporters. We need you not only to help us by writing an article about your research, but by passing this post to your friends and colleagues, your students and your teachers. Help us find people who will write about their research for the Speaking of Your Research campaign.
There has never been a better time to get involved in Science Communication. More scientists than ever before are talking about the research they do across the internet, and it’s time that those involved in animal research join the trend.
The guidelines for Speaking of Your Research are simple:
– Articles should preferably be between 400 and 1500 words (much shorter than a grant proposal!)
– Articles should include a picture if possible (No copyrighted images please)
– Articles should be signed.
– Articles should be written in a manner accessible by non-scientists (we can help with this)
– Articles should cover some of the following questions:
- What does your research involve?
- What are you researching? What applications might your research have in the future?
- Why do you need to use animal models, why not alternatives?
- How do you specifically consider the welfare needs of the animals?
The Speaking of Research committee is more than willing to offer help and advice to support you writing your article. Please email us on email@example.com
