Introducing The Conversation

For all my Australian readers, especially my students; and of course any interested international readers, I would like to introduce a supplement to the Australian daily news cycle and an antidote, perhaps, to the media hype: I present you The Conversation.

(from The Conversation website)

” The Conversation is an independent source of analysis, commentary and news from the university and research sector — written by acknowledged experts and delivered directly to the public. Our team of professional editors work with more than 4,500 registered academics and researchers to make this wealth of knowledge and expertise accessible to all.

We aim to be a site you can trust. All published work will carry attribution of the authors’ expertise and, where appropriate, will disclose any potential conflicts of interest, and sources of funding. Where errors or misrepresentations occur, we will correct these promptly.

Sincere thanks go to our Founding Partners who gave initial funding support: CSIROMonash UniversityUniversity of MelbourneUniversity of Technology Sydney and University of Western Australia.

Our initial content partners include those institutions, Strategic PartnerRMIT University and a growing list of member institutions. More than 180 institutions contribute content, including Australia’s research-intensive, Group of Eight universities.

We are based in Melbourne, Australia, and wholly owned by The Conversation Media Trust, a   not-for-profit company. ”

I commend it to you.
