Each week, tens of thousands of research papers are published and teams around the world collaborate on important work. But as members of the general public, how often do we hear about this work unless a juicy breakthrough is made?
Research Features believe that to truly value the research being conducted around the world, a broader audience of readers must be able to understand it and it has to be visible. And that’s at the heart of our mission.
Research Features work with researcher teams to distil their important work into an accessible format. We might focus on a particular research project, a laboratory’s effort or the span of a researcher’s entire career. Our editors work with the research teams to select the information we think will appeal most to you, the reader.
These researchers share our passion for science communication. They really want you to hear about their work and understand its value.
Traditional research publications often have high subscription rates (fees), sitting behind pay-walls and use language that assumes a certain level of knowledge. We’re committed to breaking down both of those barriers.
Research Features also believes that our publication and our website should not be littered with distracting advertising. We want the content we create and shared on behalf of the researchers we work for, to be the only distraction you see when viewing our publication and articles online.
Our content will always be free to access and share. We use clear and simple language with examples and imagery to help you get to grips with the topic. The researchers we work with cover the cost of this communication service so you, and people all around the world, can learn about their work and its importance, barrier-free.
