In our industry, scholarly authors write for their peers, using terms and techniques appropriate for their audience. But their results are also often of interest to a broader audience, particularly findings that impact on everyday lives. So how can we explain complex concepts to a lay audience? Do the filters that exist in modern media channels distort messages and undermine the trust that the public might have in science and academia? What approaches can be deployed to stop this happening?

This is the third in the series of the Trust, Truth and Scholarly Publishing webinars. Others in the series are Publishing without perishing which ran on 26 April and is now available as a recording and The reproducibility opportunity on 22 May.  Member discount available for booking all three!

Who should attend

Those whose role involves communicating academic research to a lay audience including press officers, communications specialists, public engagement teams, researchers.
