Malaysia's first science newspaper - the Petri Dish - is looking for short articles about science communication to help promote the best-practice of communicating science in the region.

Published by the not-for-profit organisation, the Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC), the Petri Dish is dedicated to enhancing public understanding of science and biotechnology.

Editor-in-Chief of the Petri Dish, Dr Mahaletchumy Arujanan, says that as Malaysia is relatively new in the field of science communication, she would like to learn from the experience of Australian science communicators in effectively engaging the public and key stakeholders, to enable informed decision at all levels. The Petri Dish works to bring science and research into the public domain and is circulated to universities, research institutes, government agencies and ministries related to science, cabinet members, parliament, and also at Starbucks outlets, shopping malls and  private hospitals.

MABIC has run many science communication and risk communication workshops in South East Asia, often partnering with science communicators from different countries - including Australia - to increase the level of science communication in Malaysia.

She is looking for contributions of about 700 words - with accompanying pictures - that address any issue of science communication, be it sci-comms research, case studies or discussions of interesting topics - which do not need to be limited to biotechnology.

The Petri Dish is unable to offer payment, but can provide a photo byline to contributors and publish links to your organisation and your work, further promoting what you do.  The Petri Dish can be viewed at: www.thepetridish.my<https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thepetridish.my&data=02%7C01%7C%7Ced0e048326074b3c4b2f08d68278f6f8%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636839853379197831&sdata=JpYPt81QYg%2BVdWKlhlc%2BnuZU1S4vjKm%2F%2FQSYxZJs4n4%3D&reserved=0>.
