Science communication

Science communication

Science communication is the practice of informing, raising awareness of science-related topics, and also getting involved with audiences that include, at least in part, people from outside the science community.

Science Europe views science communication as an essential element in strengthening the “role and contribution of science in tackling societal challenges” and is committed to working with its Member Organisations to foster better and more effective science communication.

Open science communication consist:

  • open review,
  • open review policy for publishers of scientific journals,
  • the use of altmetric indicators to assess the social impact of scientific publications, 
  • correction and retraction.
