The Art and Science of Communicating Science

New technologies and research advancements are transforming the way science is communicated. As social science, social media and digital publishing continue to grow, American Scientist closely covers these changes. Here is a compiled list of the magazine's key resources on the topic of science communication:

Language and Style

Open Access

Digital Publishing

Visualization

  • "Visualizing Data"
    In order to develop the much-needed new approaches to representing data, scientists must begin to embrace ideas from those who have not necessarily made a career in science but who have a serious interest in visual thinking and communication.

Multimedia

  • Radio In Vivo broadcast
    Jamie Vernon, editor-in-chief and Sigma Xi's director of science communications, and Fenella Saunders, managing editor, discuss their roles as science communicators, the history of Sigma Xi and American Scientist, and science writing and communication with Ernie Hood, radio host of Radio In Vivo, during a live broadcast on September 10, 2014.
  • How You Can Better Communicate Your Science
    Most scientists will tell you that one of the inspirations for their work is to somehow benefit mankind, whether that’s through new medicines or a better understanding of the formation of the universe. But how can scientists ensure that mankind knows about their work?

Share your thoughts about how scientists and engineers can better communicate their research below in the Disqus comments!
