Refractive Index was a blog edited by students on the MSc in Science Communication at Imperial College from October 2010 to October 2014. Its aim was to critique science communication in the global media and present new approaches to science communication through streamed audio-visual media and original writing. Contributions came mainly from the Science Communication Unit, but were also solicited from across the College and outside.

In October 2014 the editorial board (comprised of faculty staff) decided to discontinue this blog and integrate it with the (currently forthcoming) official department website. However, please do browse through the last four years’ output, listed below in descending order of date.
