We are committed to both generating research of a high standard, and to communicating that research to key audiences. We do this through a combination of peer-reviewed publications, popular articles and through our project blogs. We also give talks to the communities which are host to our research, and are regularly featured in the media. A list of our published research is present in the table below.
