Ethical Issues in Science Communication: A Theory-Based Approach

Description

The call for evidence-based policy within the environmental sector is a positive one. However communicators at the science-policy interface may need to strike a balance between staying true to scientific processes and ensuring impacts on policy-making. By analyzing interviews with those involved in a European science communication project, the study provides insight on the nature of these dilemmas and general recommendations on ethical practice.
