Science Trends was founded in July of 2017 as a platform to give scientists a voice. We provide an avenue for scientists in academia and industry to connect with more than half a million science-minded people, all for free.
To date, we’ve worked with thousands of scientists from across the world publicize their work on everything from artificial intelligence to cancer research.
Science Trends was started by Trevor Nace, a Ph.D. geologist eager to explore the world and communicate science to new and unexpected audiences. For nearly 3 years he’s written about everything from earthquakes to climate change as he covers earth and environmental science on Forbes, connecting with over 20 million people.
You can find Trevor on Twitter @trevornace or via:
As an influential voice in science communication and a passion for instilling curiosity in others, we’re just getting started. Interested in being part of the journey? We’d love to chat.
A Note About Funding
Operating costs for Science Trends are funded by both advertising and through investments from the founder, Trevor Nace. We are not backed by institutional investors, banks, or other private or public entities. This allows us to control our business model in connecting scientists and their research with the world through self-directed press releases. It’s important to emphasize that Science Trends is not an academic journal and thus has no “impact factor.” It’s also important to note that we ask for absolutely no compensation from authors.
