#48 How to write an academic book (with Assoc. Prof. Roger Søraa from NTNU)
In this podcast, we typically focus on digital science communication, specifically for content creation strategies. However, today we're going offline and discussing a different form of science communication: writing academic books. Books are a great way to make scientific knowledge more accessible and easier to understand, beyond just publishing papers.
You will learn what you need to think about when writing an academic book, what different types of academic books exist, how the publishing landscape looks like today and how different authors design their writing process.
As someone who has not yet written a scientific book apart from my PhD, I am excited to have Roger A. Søraa on the podcast. Roger is an associate professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) - and studies robotization of society and its ethical, gendered and epistemological consequences.
Find Rogers new book called "AI for Diversity" at https://www.routledge.com/AI-for-Diversity/Soraa/p/book/9781032073569.
In the first ca. 10 min we talk quite a bit about Roger and his new book. So if you want to skip that part please feel free to jump right to minute 10.
