WORKSHOP II: Sense About Science

Topic: "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 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.
