Flinders University researchers had their expertise and analysis read by an expanding global audience during 2022 thanks to a successful series of articles published on The Conversation website.
Flinders researchers penned 103 articles for The Conversation, generating more than 5.2 million clicks from readers around the world – and it’s especially impressive that more than 70% of readership for Flinders articles came from countries outside Australia.
Professor Justine Smith took top place with 972,925 reads for her article “One in three people are infected with Toxoplasma parasite – and the clue could be in our eyes”, while two articles by Associate Professor Alice Gorman – “After 45 years, the 5-billion-year legacy of the Voyager 2 interstellar probe is just beginning” and “Will NASA rename the James Webb Space Telescope? A space expert explains the Lavender Scare controversy” – round out the three most successful Flinders articles.
