We are an international team of professionals and researchers passionate about sharing critical, new and valuable ideas. Scientect.org is our scholarly blog website. The collaborative blog is dedicated to short reviews of selected topics, research commentaries, expert opinions, interviews, research reports, news, events and activity reports.
Our first website (Scientect.com, now discontinued) was launched in February 2016 in response to the limited dedicated platforms to communicate science and research findings to the general public in Ghana. The Scientect Initiative has since evolved into a community of young scholars and professionals around the world, expanding our focus and scope to all academic disciplines and professional fields. Scientect’s ultimate mission is to serve as a voice of scholars and professionals.
Our website and social media platforms reach out to over 40,000 people globally. We publish articles in all fields and academic disciplines including science and innovation, educative articles and opinions about the application of research. We also report events and activities that contribute new knowledge and inform the public.
The scholarly blog is updated by the Scientect Editorial Team (SET), with input from experts across all academic disciplines and professional fields.
