Professors and researchers from the Center for Science, Communication and Society Studies (CCS-UPF) have participated in two chapters of the book “Communicating Science: a Global Perspective“, which documents the global emergence of modern scientific communication in 39 countries of the world.

The book contains 40 differentiated chapters for each country and comparative sections, has an extension of almost 1000 pages and is the result of a work of more than four years in which 108 authors have participated, among whom you will undoubtedly recognize many well-known names of the international panorama of scientific communication.

This is the first study to describe how modern scientific communication has developed around the world. The book covers countries on all continents and regions, both in advanced economies (mainly Europe, Asia and America), and emerging economies (such as Russia, Jamaica, Estonia, Iran and Pakistan).

Gema Revuelta, director of CCS-UPF, Vladimir de Semir, President of the Advisory Council and Social Council of CCS-UPF, and Carolina Llorente, coordinator of CCS-UPF, are the authors of the chapter on Spain. Luisa Barbosa, head of international projects at CCS-UPF, is co-author of the chapter on Colombia. Both chapters are the result of the authors’ efforts to reflect not only what they know based on their personal experience in this field, but also through a documentation work that includes: academic and non-academic literature, personal interviews, consultations with scientific communication associations, etc.

The book has been coordinated by Toss Gascoigne, one of the most emblematic presidents of the PCST network (Public Communication of Science and Technology Network), who has contributed significantly to the expansion and internationalization of this network.
