We know you have the expertise. We offer a platform to connect scientists with media & journalists, to communicate your research and create opportunities to work with the media and journalists.
Work with journalist
So why work with journalists? Like it or not, mainstream media is the best way to reach out to a wider audience. More attention to your area of research may lead to new ideas and connections that could stimulate your research.
Promote your research
Share with us your latest findings. We help you to promote your research to media organisations which could draw attention from potential funders, collaborators, postgraduate students, and help to kickstart research commercialisation, and create public acceptance and appreciation of your research.

Reactions and statement on pressing issues
We will approach you for short comments when topics of your areas of expertise appear in the news headlines. You may also send us your statements so we can share them with journalists.

Database of scientists
We consolidate all public information about scientists and their areas of expertise on one platform. We hope to not only connect journalists with scientists, but researchers of various fields are also encouraged to explore areas of collaboration through this network.
Training for media interviews
Dealing with journalists should not be all that daunting! We offer workshops on how to interact with the media by providing hands-on experience on interview skills, learn how to resonate your research with journalists and write press statements. We also offer editing services for science news articles.
Science communication workshop
We believe in exploring various ways to engage public interest in science through interesting approaches and experiences beyond the mainstream media. This could range from social media optimisation, creating video content, storytelling to outreach programmes.
Master that presentation
We help you to prepare for presentations or even competitions such as the Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) where PhD and Research Masters candidates must give a compelling presentation on their thesis topic in just three minutes.
Malaysian Science Communicators
If you are a science journalist and science communicator looking to network, share and collaborate efforts to push science to the mass in a fun and engaging way, then join the Malaysian Science Communicators Group on Facebook.
This group aims to be a place where anyone can freely and comfortably ask questions about scientific topics and work together with others to discover the answers. We intend to create shared working spaces where all are invited to put their ideas and information onto the table for open discussion, exploration, and evaluation.

11 February marks The International Day of Women and Girls in Science which recognizes the critical role women and girls play in science and technology. One of the biggest takeaways from the 2020 pandemic is that the sciences is the field to watch. We need to ensure that governance and opportunities for women scientists are on the same spectrum as their male counterparts.
