What is the Hive of Knowledge?

Research can be a lonely pursuit, but it doesn’t have to be. The academic community is a thriving, supportive, and empowering place: you just need to know how to tap into it.

And that’s just what we’re shining a light on in the Hive of Knowledge.

Focusing on the experiences of those who know, we’re showing how being part of a learned society, association or organization is a great way to widen your network, boost your research, and add to your skills as a professional academic.
