History of Science Communication

Journal of Science Communication published in their special issue (Issue 03, 2017) articles on history of science communication.

Authors from various countries wrote articles and essays about history of science communication in thier respective countries.  Readers can learn about history of science communication in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, United Knigdom, Estonia, Mexico, South Africa.

Authors of editorial emphasized that: “The papers published in this issue are organized in three groups, though with diffuse boundaries: geography, media, and discipline. The first group contains works that deal descriptively and critically with the development of PCST actions and either general or specific public policies for this area in specific countries. A second set of papers examines aspects of building science communication on TV or in print media. The third group of papers presents and discusses important PCST cases in specific areas of science or technology at various historical moments.”

I strongly recommend all readers of this blog to read those articles and follow study in this are since this will help authors, editors, reviewers, system administrators to collaborate efficiently and make informed choices that put forward advancement of science communication in theory and everyday practice.
