Media and Science Communication

Media and Science Communication

What influence does external science communication, in other words the dissemination of scientific content via journalistic media and social media, have on the impact of publications and how do editorial selection processes contribute to this? The collaborative project “MeWiKo”, funded by the BMBF, records systematically the role and activities of actors in external science communication as well as the citation mechanisms in scientific communication and classifies them. Furthermore, it creates transparency about these processes that shape the scientific system.

The sub-project of the network located at the Hans-Bredow-Institut focuses on the editorial selection practices and relevance assessment of science journalists. Using editorial ethnography and a survey of science journalists in Germany, the aim is to identify relevant department-specific news factors and to collect further information in order to model the influence of external science communication on the impact of scientific work.
