SciDev.Net Plus

SciDev.Net – the world’s leading source of reliable and authoritative news, views and analysis about science and technology for global development – is launching a new service offering members a range of exclusive benefits.

Subscribers to SciDev.Net Plus will receive exclusive access to a monthly conference call with SciDev.Net’s coordinators across the globe and the ability to have your questions answered, advanced notification on breaking stories and emerging trends as well as priority entry to its quarterly global networking events and roundtables.

Ben Deighton, Managing Editor of SciDev.Net, said, “SciDev.Net Plus is a way for us to maximise on a win-win situation. As your voice in science for development, SciDev.Net seeks to prioritise the issues that matter the most, making the case for science-informed policymaking, and help create the necessary conditions for innovation across the developing world.

“As a member of SciDev.Net Plus, our journalists across the globe will open up their contact books and give you the story behind the news in these challenging times. Access to our reach and networks will be invaluable as our subscribers seek to build their development programmes and demonstrate their impact to funders and partners.”

Subscribers will not only help fund SciDev.Net’s journalism to highlight the benefits of science in the developing world, but the service’s reach and network will also help customers build effective programmes that have demonstrable impact.

With journalists in over 80 countries and homepages in Arabic, French, Spanish and English, SciDev.Net is the world’s leading news service looking at the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries. In 2019, its content was seen over 200 million times.

SciDev.Net is offering founding members a lifetime price of £9 per month if they commit now. SciDev.Net has pledged to never increase the price for people who register their interest before 31 October 2020.
