If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s nobody around to hear, does it make a sound?
You do not need to look far to see humanity is currently on information overload. We live increasingly fast-paced lives, with so much more information to process, and our attention spans have become shorter. SciPod corroborates this phenomenon; we embody the Audible generation and the way the modern world loves to learn at pace and learn while multitasking.
You have done the hard work in publishing your research. Now you need to make sure as many people as possible hear about it. Draw extra attention to your work and build an interested community who can support your efforts.
SciPod will transform your scholarly paper into a sharable 10-minute audio layman summary. helping you to reach thousands more people.
With over 7000 new science papers being published each day, many are never read let alone cited. Using audio can help cut through the noise of over-publishing and help to communicate scientific research in an accessible language for a non-specialist audience.
SciPod is the leading audio science communicator providing an end-to-end production and dissemination service supporting researchers in communicating their work and reaching a much broader and diverse audience. Each SciPod is written by our team of PhD-level science writers who work diligently to transform complex technical papers into a plain language summary. Our professional voice artists beautifully narrate the summary into an understandable, enjoyable, and impactful audiobook.
Our unique 4 step editorial process allows us to work from distance whilst giving you full control with minimal time commitment
Step 1 – We ask you to provide us with the research paper you would like as the topic focus.
Step 2 – We write a 1100 word layman summary/script. You have the chance to review, comment, and approve.
Step 3 – Our voice artists then produce the first full 10-minute audiobook draft. You have the chance to review, comment, and approve.
Step 4 – Once approved, your audio is published and disseminated.
It’s as simple as that. On average, the process should take no longer than 1 hour of your time over a period of 3–4 weeks.
SciPod could be summarised as a ‘post print’ form of science communication, or an accessible plain language summary produced into the modern communication format of an audiobook.
Our dissemination team publish and promote each audiobook to an audience of 40,000 monthly website visitors. We also disseminate through all major audio sites including Audible, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, SoundCloud, Stitcher, Breaker, Pocket Cast, Radio Public, Researcher App, and Overcast to name a few.
