Custom scicomm support
If you need personalised scicomm support for one of your projects, please contact us to see what we can do for you.
Science writing. Rates for science writing jobs vary because they are dependent on the amount of work and the type of project. Email to discuss your budget and needs.
- The type of writing we can do for scientists: General summary of your project in a few paragraphs or sentences, conference summaries, press release text (no distribution), text for crowdfunding or citizen science projects, summaries of papers aimed at people outside of your field, content for websites or newsletters, video scripts, flyers, etc. Get in touch to find out how we can help you with your specific requirements.
Science communication consultation. If you’re not sure what kind of science communication help you need, we can help you get started with a 20-minute online conference call.
- How it works: Email us so that we can arrange a good time for an online call that suits our respective time zones. Once we’ve scheduled a time for the call, we’ll send you an invoice and some questions about the project you need help with. During the call, we can narrow down your requirements, and advise you on the best next steps forward for your project.
- This call has a fixed price of £25 (GBP), €30 (EUR) or $35 (USD). If you need further support after that, you will be charged separately.
