Hello from Lapland! — R Voice

Hello from Lapland!

Thanks for letting me join. I am Nicholas Rowe, and did my PhD in Education here in chilly Lapland. My main interests are scientific communication (not science communication), doctoral support, and academic wellbeing/reform. Hope to have some great discussions on this platform.

    Hey Nicholas -two things:

    1- hello!

    2 - what is the difference between science communication and scientific communication?

    Broadly, scientific communication concerns the ways we communicate information amongst ourselves (publish, present, network, etc.), whereas science communication looks at how we bring our work to outside audiences via media, etc. I'm with the former, particularly conferences (and a lot of highly interesting stuff on ... posters!).

    Hi @Nicholas Rowe - welcome to R Voice! It's great to have you here. 🙂

    I had the same question as Chris, so thanks for clearing that up. Also, curious to know - is the image you shared a digital sketch of you?

    No 😂 It is a pic done by Times Higher Ed for a piece I did for them. Conjures up images of Lapland though!
