Basically, scientists are expected to share their research results with others in various forms and to offer their knowledge for the benefit of society. One of the most common ways of sharing knowledge and findings in the academic world is publishing papers in scientific journals. In 2013, for example, more than 260 peer-reviewed papers were published on mastitis and udder health in dairy cattle. However, scientific publications can be difficult to access by non-scientists and often contain so much detailed information that they are understandable by only a small set of readers – mostly from the scientific community.
