About the Program
Are you a professor at a university, community college, or technical school who is passionate about science communication and writing but lacks the time to teach it in your curriculum? Sciworthy’s professor partnership program can help you!
How it Works
Our unique, self-paced, online writing course can be seamlessly integrated into your syllabus, allowing your students to hone their writing skills while reading and summarizing scientific studies. Our team of editors will work with your students to polish their writing, with the goal of publishing their summaries on our science news website, providing them with valuable experience and a chance to showcase their work to a wider audience.
Our program is open to graduate and junior- or senior-level undergraduate science courses, as well as individual research groups, both inside and outside the US. You can be as hands-on or hands-off as you wish, and we can provide you with ideas on how to incorporate the program into your semester schedule. See what past participants have written!
The benefits that our participants are most excited about:
Your students will receive English writing and grammar lessons, gain experience reading primary literature, and learn how to communicate science to non-scientists. They will also receive a real-world “grading” experience, with the possibility of having their articles published on our site, which can be added to their resumes and enhance their science writing career prospects.
Professors do not have to spend time separately teaching writing — we do that for you with our online course and editing pipeline.
