Join in the Conversation

Since its UK launch two years ago, The Conversation has become the definitive independent media platform for showcasing academic expertise, and a highly influential source of news analysis and commentary from the academic and research community, with a social following of nearly 50,000 across Facebook and Twitter.

Our 78 authors (and counting) have had a total of 113 articles published to date, which have garnered an impressive 1.3 million article views and been republished by the likes of The Washington Post and The Independent.

As one of the founding partners of The Conversation, the University of Aberdeen benefits from regular visits from its Scotland editor, Steven Vass. Staff who wish to spread the word about their research or share their expert views about matters that are of public interest, are encouraged to get involved - if interested, you could become an author or follow the conversation by signing up to the weekly newsletter.
