Scientific Communication



Scientific communication is undergoing rapid change, influenced by the diversification of the environment in which knowledge is produced and developments in information technologies. While the environments in which information is recorded and made available are gradually moving from printed to electronic, the research and communication environments of scientists are moving to virtual environments with the opportunities provided by technology. Digital environments need to be taken more into account in the production, access, organization and presentation of scientific outputs to the user. While all these changes and developments have altered the structure of scholarly communication, the elements of conventional communication, and the roles of scholars, they have also greatly affected the responsibilities and understanding of the role of university research libraries, which have played a fundamental and important role in scholarly communication since its inception.




Science communicators develop strategies and methods to promote informed decisions about scientific issues. Through effective communication techniques, experts (e.g. scientists) can inform non-experts (e.g. members of the public) about scientific issues and increase public awareness and understanding of science. An informed public has the capacity to think, digest and make sound decisions about science in a democratic society. Scientists can also communicate their ideas and findings more effectively to each other.
