Seminar on How to Strengthen News Coverage of Social and Behavioral Science

August 9, 2016
 
The seminar’s purpose was to improve the identification of newsworthy social and behavioral science and how it is reported through all media. Invited speakers included social and behavioral scientists experienced in communicating science, leading journalists and other media and organizations that use social science in their reporting, and academic experts in uses of media for science communication. The goal was for all participants to learn about how individual researchers, science-based organizations, and people in the media can more effectively work together to convey socially valuable information that benefits the public.
