New book on science communication by Professor Alan Kelly
For research to have an impact on the world beyond the laboratory, it has to be communicated effectively.
Communication skills are thus hugely important for scientists, who need to be able to communicate their work in a wide range of contexts and to wide-ranging audiences. In addition, the reliability and integrity of scientific information needs to be ensured, so that scientists retain trust and credibility in today’s complex world. In the current Covid-19 pandemic, there is a particularly acute focus on the effective translation of research findings into direct impact, which depends on effective communication.
How scientists can best communicate their research is the subject of a new book by Professor Alan Kelly of the School of Food and Nutritional Sciences, called 'How Scientists Communicate: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Knowledge' (published by Oxford University Press in October 2020).
