Why blog?

Writing a blog post is a great way to reach beyond the traditional audience for academic work to share research findings with the public, with key community stakeholders, or across academic disciplines. It allows you to disseminate and promote your work in an accessible format which is free to access.

How to blog well

A blog post should not be an extended abstract or an essay. It needs to be engaging and comprehensible to a lay person. We've compiled some great tips to get you started in our Guest Blogger Guidelines.
