Research seminars are a foundational part of academia and an important medium for communicating new ideas and research. However, national lockdowns and social distancing regulations have required research seminars to be translated at speed into digital virtual environments, for which they are not always well suited. In this post Peter Vincent discusses the challenges faced by academics in creating virtual seminar series and suggests how using Cassyni, a new tool developed by the founders of Mendeley, Publons and Kopernio, researchers might develop hybrid approaches to research seminar series that are more effective, inclusive and environmentally sustainable than the previous in-person seminar format.
