Earlier this year, 23 international experts in science, media, and policy gathered at a science communication workshop in Washington, D.C. to present a number of guidelines for more effective science communication in the face of changing public perceptions. An article describing the eight steps they outlined appeared last week in the June issue of Nature Biotechnology. ScienceBlogger Matthew Nisbet was among the workshop participants and is one of the paper’s two primary authors.
