Communicating Time Use Research to the Public

Even the highest quality academic research often sits behind journal paywalls and impenetrable professional jargon. This is a shame, particularly when it comes to interdisciplinary time-use research, which has the potential to inform policy debates, public perceptions, and professions, sectors, and academic disciplines outside the mainstream time-use community. The 2019 IATUR conference theme is about conducting and communicating research to policy makers and the broader public. Plenary sessions will include discussions of effective presentations and data visualization, translating academic research and writing for the general public, and developing productive cross-sector collaborations between academic researchers and non-profit and government institutions that wish to use data to make evidence-based policy and decisions.
