Tell your research story with AudioSlides


About this video

Once you’ve poured your heart and soul into a research project, it’s only natural you want to share the results as widely as possible. Elsevier’s AudioSlides – short, webcast-style presentations – offer a simple and powerful way to let the world know about your findings.  They are easy to make and, once complete, appear next to your article on ScienceDirect. They are open access (regardless of your article’s status), so are easy to share and can be embedded in other websites, including your own.

In this webinar recording, Lucy Goodchild van Hilten, a science communications professional, explains how AudioSlides provide a new perspective on your research ‘story’.  She runs through existing examples and shares some top tips and templates, before exploring how you can use your AudioSlides presentation to get attention for your work.

You’ll come away understanding why science communication is important and how AudioSlides can help. You’ll learn how to build a strong AudioSlides presentation and what it takes to keep your story clear yet meaningful; as Albert Einstein said, “if you can’t explain something simply, you don’t understand it well enough”.

About the teacher

Lucy Goodchild van Hilten

Freelance science writer

After a few accidents, Lucy Goodchild van Hilten discovered that she’s a much better writer than a scientist. Following an MSc in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology at Imperial College London, she became Assistant Editor of Microbiology Today. A stint in the press office at Imperial saw her stories on the front pages, and she moved to Amsterdam to work at Elsevier as Senior Marketing Communications Manager for Life Sciences.

She’s now a freelance writer at Tell Lucy. Tweet her @LucyGoodchild.
