Science communication is one topic deeply embedded in each of our Nodes of Science. Speaking on any public science issue means considering how to engage an audience and questioning various approaches to communication. Although we have lifetimes of experience in communication, we still have much to learn from evidence-based communication strategies and the science of science communication. For these reasons, Nodes of Science would like to share literature and discussions from around our groups as well as communities with similar missions.
