Sense about Science ? equipping people to make sense of science and evidence
Join the network
VoYS is a network for early career researchers (PhD students, post-docs or equivalent in first job) in all sciences, engineering and medicine.
Many members join the network after attending one of the Standing up for Science media workshops. VoYS have a mailing list, Facebook group and Twitter feed to plan and discuss their campaigns. VoYS members also get involved in Sense About Science through volunteering in the office, contributing to our publications and helping out at events.
If you are an early career researcher and would like to join the VoYS network please fill in this support form below and mark that you are an early career researcher and want to join VoYS.
Top tip 1: Ask for Evidence. If you’re being sold a product or asked to believe a claim then you deserve to know whether it’s based on evidence – or imagination.
Top tip 2: Detox. It’s a marketing myth – our body does it without pricey potions and detox diets.
Top tip 3: Superfood. There is no such thing, just foods that are high in some nutrients.
Top tip 4: Cleansing. You shouldn’t be trying to cleanse anything other than your skin or hair.
Top tip 5: If it sounds too good to be true… it probably is.
