Summary

Analyzing the role of journalists in science communication, this book presents a perspective on how this is going to evolve in the twenty-first century.

The book takes three distinct perspectives on this interesting subject. Firstly, science journalists reflect on their ‘operating rules’ (science news values and news making routines). Secondly, a brief history of science journalism puts things into context, characterising the changing output of science writing in newspapers over time. Finally, the book invites several international journalists or communication scholars to comment on these observations thereby opening the global perspective.

This unique project will interest a range of readers including science communication students, media studies scholars, professionals working in science communication and journalists.
