|Communicating Science Effectively: |
This report from DBASSE offers a research agenda that can inform efforts to communicate about science effectively, particularly when issues are contentious. The report points to cross-cutting themes for scientists and science communicators to consider in their work, as well as major challenges that should be studied to make science communication more effective. This research agenda should be pursued not only by researchers in academic settings but by researchers and practitioners embedded in various organizations that communicate science.
A briefing about this report will be held on January 10, 2017; the briefing will be webcast.
