Are UK universities doing enough to make research accessible to students, funders and the public? Claire Shaw reports

Courage Julius Logah's insight:

This is so true about Africa as well. At a recent Science Communication Course organized by #DRUSSA in ACCRA, we searched the participating Universities sites for completed and on-going research. It was very disappointing because though there were some news items on research, it was difficult to tell what research was currently going or had been completed recenly. It was agreed that most of the Universities in Sub-Saharan Africa needed to take a second look at their website with the aim of enhancing their research information output on it, to make it more accessible to students, funders and the public.
