JKUAT Library Management yesterday met with conversation Africa Audience Development Manager, Ms. Judy Nguta. In a meeting which was convened by JKUAT Corporate Communications, the two institutions shared on how to make JKUAT research visible to the wider public in a journalistic format.
The Conversation Africa was launched as a pilot project in May 2015 to be independent source of news and views from the academic and research community, delivered direct to the public.
Conversation Africa provides access to independent, high quality, authenticated, explanatory journalism which underpins a functioning democracy. It aims to promote better understanding of current affairs and complex issues and to help rebuild trust in journalism.
Conversation Africa has a team of professional editors who work with experts from universities and research institutions to unlock their knowledge for use by the wider public.
All authors and editors sign up to Conversation Africa’s Editorial Charter. All contributors must abide by the institution’s Community Standards policy.
Conversation Africa only allows authors to write on a subject on which they have proven expertise, which they must disclose alongside their article. Authors’ funding and potential conflicts of interest must also be disclosed. Failure to do so carries a risk of being banned from contributing to the site.
