      I work as a researcher and the main way we share our work with other scientists is through papers (scientific reports). In a paper we say what we did, why, how, and what the result was.

      I use a website (RSS feed) which highlights papers than might be interesting for me. When when I arrive in my office I will sit and flick through these suggestions whilst drinking my coffee.

      In the team I work in (around 20 people) we also have regular meetings where we discuss some of the new research. We share our opinions and discuss how we could apply their reults to improve our work.

      Hey! There’s a few ways that I try to stay up to date: I subscribe to a lot of science magazines, this helps me stay up to date with general science leaps. I also get a Chemistry alone magazine as part of being signed up to the RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry) and for more specific area of chemistry I can look up journals and articles online.

      I have different ways to stay up to date: I read the magazine that I receive from The Royal Society of Chemistry, I go to conferences, I read scientific articles in scientific journals and I go to seminars organised by my university. Following some pages on Twitter is also helpful!

      I keep up to date by reading scientific papers and going to conferences where people share their new findings in person
