About the webinar
Universities and research funders and evaluators are increasingly monitoring the extent that researchers actively promote Open Research principles and achieve research impact beyond academia. Successfully publishing your research paper in an academic journal is thus only the start of making a valued contribution to the wider society. To raise awareness of your research paper and maximise its usefulness, you’ll need to prepare additional communications in different non-academic English styles. This webinar will help you master some of the text genres and styles needed to effectively reach multiple general audiences.
This webinar covers:
1. Plain English language principles
2. Writing to engage different stakeholders
3. Tips for turning your research findings into news
