Science Communication: Home

Resources on the art and science of communicating science to lay audiences.

Welcome to the Annenberg Library's resource guide for science communication.  Here you will find resources on the art and science of communicating scientific knowledge, research, and related public policy to various audiences. This includes issues and dynamics around experts (scientists) informing non-experts on scientific matters but also, and increasingly, has come to include professionals who are not scientists--journalists, academics, consultants, and educators--involved in such communications. Last but not least, science communication can also be defined more narrowly, as simply how scientists communicate with each other.

The goal of science communication is multi-pronged. Obviously, increasing public understanding of science can help citizens live better, longer lives. In the public sphere, a more informed citizenry is better positioned to make more ethical and efficacious policy decisions regarding science, at least that is the hope. And if rounding up resources around this topic helps contribute to this goal, all the better!
