Spotlight on author services: SciPod

To help you make the most of your research, we’ve partnered with a group of leading author service providers to offer Hindawi authors a discount on a wide range of manuscript preparation and post-publication promotion services.


This month, we’re shining a spotlight on our partnership with SciPod to highlight their impact enhancement service for authors. SciPod specializes in transforming your research findings into a share-able audiobook summary, so your research can be disseminated and understood widely.

A 10% discount is available to Hindawi authors on SciPod’s audio summaries. 

What is a SciPod?

A SciPod is a 10-minute audiobook that summarizes academic research in a lay-friendly language. Because a lot of academics are being encouraged to share their research findings outside of academia, SciPod can be a way to support that effort.

  • Each SciPod is written by a team of PhD-level science writers who transform complex technical papers into a plain language summary

  • Professional voice artists narrate the summary into an understandable and impactful audiobook

  • SciPods are disseminated through all major audio sites including iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, SoundCloud, Stitcher, Breaker, Pocket Cast, Radio Public, and Overcast

  • SciPod is available for all disciplines of sciences and humanities

Special SciPod offer

Until January 10th, 2021, all Hindawi authors who order a SciPod audiobook summary will also receive a free graphically designed research summary e-book. This means that in addition to making your research understandable and share-able via an audio summary, you can also share or print a professionally designed text version. Be sure to check out a sample e-book to see for yourself. You can benefit from this offer via the link below.
