Best Practices: Covering Science in Cyberspace Blog

Read blog contributions from prominent science journalists and science communicators who participated in this special conference. Visit the blog created during the seminar.

Two dozen prominent science journalists and science communicators were invited to participate in this special conference with three goals: 1) Identify the critical issues facing science journalists in the digital age; 2) identify innovative forms of multimedia story-telling and presentation of complex issues online; and 3) identify “best practices” for coverage of science issues on digital platforms. Among the topics discussed were:

  • Defining exactly what is “science;
  • Revealing untold science stories and determining why they have not been told;
  • Exploring visual journalism and digital story telling techniques.

The participants’ (see bios of fellows and experts) discussions were covered by USC students in a blog throughout the conference. The participants also were encouraged to add their own perspectives to the blog in an effort to capture the diverse points of view.
