Inclusive Research Communication
Broaden your audience by communicating your research in a variety of ways.
- Social media
- Issue/policy brief
- News media
Using diverse methods of research communication helps research become more inclusive and accessible to those outside of the research institution/field. This is especially important for those engaged in community-based research and any research that may impact specific populations. Consider consolidating your research into one of the forms above and practice communicating your research to those outside of your field!
Research results contribute to knowledge in a field when they are shared with other practitioners in the discipline.
If you’ve made a significant contribution to an area of research, you may wish to collaborate on a peer-reviewed publication for a professional journal. Also, be sure to talk to your mentor or a faculty member in your department if you have questions about getting published.
If you have had your work published or showcased in any venue, we would love to hear about it. Let us know at email@example.com.
The UW Libraries offer a variety of resources related to publishing:
Contact your subject librarian for more help.
If you would like to share your publications online, the UW Research Works offers a digital repository to share your published work in collaboration with your community.
