Access to Understanding

PhD students and early career researchers with an interest in communicating science to the public may wish to take part in new science-writing competition, Access to Understanding.

A scientific journal article may be the established way to describe your science to other researchers, but is this the best way to explain scientific findings to the public? If you’re confident that you can write about the complicated scientific terms and concepts in a research article in a way that anyone can easily understand, this could be the competition for you.

Using no more than 800 words, the competitions requires you to pick one article from the list provided and explain the research and why it matters to a non-scientific audience.

Closing date for entries is Friday 11 January at 5pm.

More information can be found on the competition website.
