What is Science X Dialog?

Science X Dialog is where researchers can share news and information about their own published journal articles. Science X Dialog articles are written for general science-minded readers, and provide an opportunity to clarify and explain complex scientific data in a way that Science X’s audience of 10 million readers can understand and share. Coverage in Science X Dialog may also help author-researchers in obtaining future grants or positions.

How a Dialog story differs from a press release

A press release is structured like a traditional news story. By contrast, Dialog seeks a direct level of engagement with the audience—imagine that you are writing a TED talk and speaking to professionals and students who may not be experts in your specific field.

That connection is direct and explanatory—and it is best suited for a first-person voice in which you express your own thoughts and ideas about the subject of the article. A Dialog story does not have the requirement of strict formality that might characterize a press release or a news story.
