*Building Trust in Science Communication: the role of journals and journalists, pre- and post-publication*
In celebration of Peer Review Week 2022, join a panel of experts in science journalism and editorial ethics to explore issues related to peer review, research integrity, and the public’s understanding of–and trust in–science.
We’ll explore issues including:
- Interpreting research for the public in a way that balances accessibility with the mutability and nuance inherent in discovery
- Communicating about the scientific editorial and peer review process itself
- What happens when concerns arise after an article is published
