The Conversation U.S.

Democratizing knowledge for the public good


The Conversation’s mission is to promote truthful information and strengthen journalism by unlocking the rich diversity of academic research for the public.

About our journalism

We help academic experts communicate what they know on important issues before the public. Our experienced editors locate scholars and help them share their research in understandable articles. These articles range from the latest science of coronavirus and climate change to analysis of political issues to fascinating historical and cultural context.

Our content is free to read and free to republish under a Creative Commons license. This has enabled hundreds of news organizations, large and small, nonprofit and for profit, to provide their readers with quality, fact-based information.

We have launched a new initiative this year to raise up the voices of diverse scholars.
