Welcome to Scientia

Opening a dialogue between science and society

 

Scientia is a series of outreach research publications. Simply put, we connect people: scientists and educators, policy-makers and researchers, and the public and private sectors. We provide high-quality, technically sound, visually engaging, and relevant information for our vast audience of thinkers and explorers.

Importantly Scientia helps researchers communicate their findings beyond their specialty and into the wider world. Scientia offers the research community significant visibility and accessibility to those both inside and outside the community to take an interest in science and research. Often technical, scientific language serves as a barrier to creating social impact and that’s where our publication plays a vital role in reaching a global stakeholder network.
