SciDev.Net partnered with the London School of Economics (LSE, UK) and Museu da Vida (Brazil) published the Global Science Journalism Report. Working Conditions & Practices, Professional Ethos and Future Expectations, to examine science communication around the world: journalists’ background, workload, and opinions on science communication, work environment and capacity building needs.
The above organisations wanted to explore the profile of science journalists as well as their perceptions regarding two historical trends: the crisis of print journalism (mainly in USA, Canada and Europe), and the commercialisation of science globally. They found no confirmation for a global sense of crises in science communication, contrary to the evidence presented by a feature published in Nature by Geoff Brumfiel Science journalism: Supplanting the old media?
