TWAS Plus: The news you need

TWAS Plus: The news you need

TWAS Plus is a practical and easy-to-use guide to the Academy's most important initiatives and opportunities in support of science for the developing world.

A new bimonthly bulletin – TWAS Plus – will provide important Academy news and opportunities in a bright, easy-to-use format for a diverse global audience that ranges from TWAS fellows to early career researchers.

TWAS has just begun taking subscriptions for the bulletin, which will be delivered by email six times per year. Anyone can subscribe, without cost. To subscribe, please find the TWAS Plus button at the top of, or visit the TWAS Plus web page.

"We've designed TWAS Plus to be a useful guide to the work we're doing and the opportunities we offer to scientists at every stage of their careers," says Romain Murenzi, TWAS executive director. "TWAS Plus will deliver our most important news – including career-building programmes and coming deadlines in our PhD and post-doctoral fellowships, research grants, award competitions and visiting scientist posts."

With a crisp, engaging look, TWAS Plus is a tremendous addition to the TWAS family of publications, including the TWAS Newsletter and its social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter. With Internet and email access expanding dramatically in the developing world, TWAS has been re-imagining its communication strategy to deliver its message more effectively to a growing TWAS community.

Every issue of TWAS Plus will provide timely information on major upcoming events and career-building programmes, and provide news on the Academy's work in strategic fields such as research, education, science policy and science diplomacy.

In addition, the bulletin will include news from the TWAS's three associated organizations: the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World; IAP, the global network of science academies; and the InterAcademy Medical Panel. Their presence in TWAS Plus demonstrates the Academy's commitment to the diverse scientific communities and networks that are essential for the advancement of science in developing countries.

Founded in 1983, TWAS has earned a reputation for excellence in science communication. TWAS Plus will further serve the Academy's mission by strengthening links between scientists who live far apart and inviting them into a global community where knowledge has no boundaries and science is the common language used to build  sustainable prosperity and peace.
