Paper Considers ‘the Sciences of Science Communication’

A new article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) introduces areas of research that inform efforts to communicate about science. The paper stems from the May 2012 Sackler Colloquium on “The Science of Science Communication.” A follow-up colloquium, “The Science of Science Communication II,” will be hosted by the National Academy of Sciences September 23-25, 2013.
Both colloquia seek to advance a national dialogue about the continuing challenges facing scientists, professional communicators, and the interested public as they seek to exchange information about science.
