An introduction to communicating science, engineering and technology

At some time or another, most science writers are asked "How do you go about writing for the press?" Indeed, some people make a nice living revealing our trade secrets to scientists. Well, the Office of Science and Technology in the UK has made it a bit easier by publishing Going Public: An Introduction to Communicating Science, Engineering and Technology. Even better, the OST has posted the document on its WWW site.

The document also has advice for scientists who want to get involved in other activities that take science to a wider audience, through talks, for example, or working with museums.

There are also details of organisations and resources that could help anyone wishing to go public.

The document came about as a result of a recommendation in the Wolfendale report.

Before anyone asks, this was written by Michael Kenward, whose site this is.
