Sense about Science ? equipping people to make sense of science and evidence
Standing Up for Science
Standing up for Science is a lively, informal guide to the inner workings of the media with practical tips about how early career scientists can get involved.
The guide has been developed by a team of early career scientists who, after attending VoYS workshops, wanted to share insights into how to talk about their research and improve the science in public discussions.
The team, armed with a list of concerns from their peers and their own insights from the workshops, interviewed scientists, journalists and press officers across the country to find out what they thought early career scientists should know about the media and myths and fears about how they work.
The result is Standing up for Science, a guide to the media for early career scientists by early career scientists.
