Curious about doing science communication research?
One of the aims of our network is to help scaffold and bootstrap the philosopher's path to the communication of science and public engagement of science. We are thus crowd-sourcing a list of resources to help ourselves and others in our position. The world of "scicomm" is vast, including public engagement, citizen science, institutional communications, science education, science policy, science art and so much more! We cannot possibly be exhaustive. Consider this a starting point for interested philosophers.
