Roundtable on the Communication and Use of Social and Behavioral Sciences
Seminar on How to Strengthen News Coverage of Social and Behavioral Science


August 9, 2016

The seminar’s purpose is to improve the identification of newsworthy social and behavioral science and how it is reported through all media. Invited speakers include 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 is 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.
