Promoting awareness of your research outside of academic and scholarly circles is helpful in increasing the impact of your work, and it is elemental to engaging the general public and community partners in science. Papers that receive public attention are proven to have higher citation rates.
There are many ways to engage the public in your science – whether it is to share your findings, or engage them in your field. Explore various modes of communication below to determine whether they match your needs. Faculty should be sure to update their Scholars@Duke page with these and other “Scholarly, Clinical & Service Activities.”
