Activities aimed at promoting research are increasingly becoming important. Making your research visible can increase the chances of your research being noticed, used and having an impact. There are many activities and tools which researchers can use to help promote research and research findings.
Here are 4 easy steps to get you started
Step 1: Engage using social media

Step 2: Become an author on The Conversation
The Conversation is a global independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered directly to the public. It is run by a team of professional editors who work with university and other research experts from more than 70 institutions in the UK alone, to produce articles on their areas of knowledge for use by the wider public. Their newsroom, based in London, is part of a global newsroom able to share content across sites and around the world.
Watch a short 2-minute video of Emily Marchant, a PhD Researcher for the HAPPEN Project, talks about her experiences in writing an article for The Conversation.
