Scientists Encouraged to Invest Time for Science CommunicationMay 19, 2021
Time devoted to science communication is a valuable investment that can have a tremendous societal impact, according to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Assistant Professor Esther Ngumbi. The statement was discussed in A Comprehensive Guide on Science Communication edited by Fani Kelesidou and Eclodie Chabrol and published by Hindawi.
The guide includes practical tips and examples of how to best convey science to facilitate engagement; do's and don'ts when communicating research to the general public, and insightful interviews with individuals who were involved in public engagement and science communication campaigns. The guide is available for download, as Hindawi follows open access publishing model to help facilitate better communication of science and effectively transform people's lives.
