Given current science-related crises facing the world such as climate change, the targeting and manipulation of DNA, GMO foods and vaccine denial, the way in which we communicate science matters is vital for current and future generations of scientists and publics.
The Routledge Handbook of Scientific Communication scrutinizes what we value, prioritise and grapple with in science as highlighted by the rhetorical choices of scientists, students, educators, science gatekeepers, and lay commentators. Drawing on contributions from leading thinkers in the field, this volume explores some of the most pressing questions in this growing field of study, including:
- How do issues such as ethics, gender, race, shifts in the publishing landscape, and English as the lingua franca of science influence scientific communication practices?
- How have scientific genres evolved and adapted to current research and societal needs?
- How have scientific visuals developed in response to technological advances and communication needs?
- How is scientific communication taught to a variety of audiences?
Offering a critical look at the complex relationships that characterize current scientific communication practices in academia, industry, government and elsewhere, this Handbook will be essential reading for students, scholars and professionals involved in the study, practice and teaching of scientific, medical and technical communication.
