The Online Scientist serves scientists who want to carry their research further

The Online Scientist is the one-stop-shop for scientists who want to communicate clearly, but who lack the time or skills to do it themselves.

The scientific background of The Online Scientist facilitates quick understanding, and a result that is tailor-made for the target audience – whether that is the general public, students or peers.

By working with The Online Scientist, you can increase the impact of what you’re doing. A website with infographic may just convince the committee in charge of funding, while an e-learning module serves the students while saving you valuable time. A movie about your breakthrough aimed at the public helps journalists, and can easily be shared on social media.

Their scientific background makes it a very pleasant collaboration; they instantly feel what we mean.

Communicating research

How do I inform the general public about the scientific knowledge on nutrition and cancer, without coming across as boring or hard-to-reach?

Professor with an important message

Academic teaching

I’m too busy to keep giving all these theoretical lectures. There should be a way to serve my students just as well, while saving me time.

Professor with a busy schedule

Presenting at a conference

I must give an important lecture. How do I make my presentation stand out, so that I will be the talk of the day among my peers?

Because we are scientists ourselves, we know how important it is to do science dissemination right. Actually, we think it is important enough for us to dedicate our careers to it! We are now working full-time for scientists who want to create an impact with a certain audience, but who may lack the skills, time or knowledge to do so themselves.

We want to give that high-profile research the attention it deserves by refomulation that brilliant nuance, and we want to keep your study in the collective memory by showing what it means. It’s our calling!

Stephan van Duin & Liesbeth Smit of The Online Scientist

Read how these professors got thousands of hits on their website, cancelled their lectures and gave the ‘talk of the town’.


Nutrition & Cancer website

Professor Ellen Kampman was looking for a partner to develop a website with, containing reliable information on nutrition and cancer.

It had to be an attractive website that could compete with commercial sites, but it also had to present scientific content in an orderly way.


It resulted in the website a platform for questions that patients may have about this difficult subject, and that provides the most recent scientific insights without being boring.


E-learning in education

Professor Kees de Graaf was giving the same, annual theoretical lectures about sensory research. He didn’t see the added value of giving them anymore, and the students were not very enthusiastic in their feedback as well.

The solution we had for him was an e-learning course. The content of the lecture was transformed into interactive assignments and questions, and the students could follow it in their own time. It resulted in an emptier schedule for the professor, while the students showed both better results, and an improved liking and understanding of the difficult matter.


Lecture Prof. Frans Kok

For every highly regarded scientist there comes a time to say goodbye – mostly semiofficial – when the superannuation starts. Professor Frans Kok was anxious about this moment, and specifically the farewell address. He was very conscious about the potential impact of such a lecture, so he naturally wanted to maximize the result.

We helped Frans with the design of this slides, by providing him with a formatted design, and also assisting him in which information to put on the slides. The result was a worthy presentation that was talked about a lot during the party.

How they liked the results:

We feel that The Online Scientist was a tremendous help in the making of this attractive website. Stephan provided direction in answering the questions; what is the level of the reader, how do you structure your message and what are the traits of a readable article? Liesbeth made sure the design, content and navigation of the website was complementary to the content.

Prof. Ellen Kampman and Merel van Veen, Wageningen University

Thanks to The Online Scientist we have been able to create a beautiful e-module in short time, and one that our students love as well. The contact with Liesbeth and Stephan was smooth and pleasant. They were able to think along with our wishes, and the transformation of learning goals to an interactive module. I can definitely recommend this cooperation to others!

Dr. Sanne Boesveldt, Assistant Professor Sensory Science,Wageningen University

I wanted the farewell address celebrating the end of my term as a professor Nutrition and Health to be groomed to perfection. I thought I had enough experience in giving lectures, speeches and media appearances to be prepared for this. I asked the Online Scientist to have a quick look at it. I was rather irritated when Liesbeth pointed out all the things that could be improved, because I’d been doing this myself for years. But I found out how important the layout and catchy graphics are to get the message across to a mixed audience. They did a great job, I received many compliments from the 650 attendees.
