Weitkamp, E. (2014)
Publisher: Sissa Medialab
Languages: English
Types: Article
Subjects:
This issue of the Journal of Science Communication raises a number\ud of questions about the ways that new scientific research emerges from research\ud institutions and in particular the role played by scientists, press officers and\ud journalists in this process. This is not to suggest that the public don’t play an\ud equally important role, and several articles in this issue raise questions about\ud public engagement, but to explore the dynamics at play in one specific arena: that\ud of news production. In this editorial I explore the increasing reliance of science\ud journalists on public relations sources and consider what questions this raises for\ud science communication.
