Animation

Alongside our flagship Research Features Magazine, our team has developed Sci Ani, a new venture that will create a new high-quality outlet for researchers and scientists to share their work. Globally, more and more people are taking advantage of high-speed internet to watch videos and interact with content, rather than sticking to the traditional static publishing.

 

To take advantage of these new possibilities, we offer multimedia content designed to engage the audience and encourage viewers to take an active interest in your great research.
