As STEM fields are increasingly aware of the value of sharing scientific innovations and research with the general public, effective communication skills have become a valued skill-set for STEM professionals. Science communication is often used to describe a growing sub-field and efforts by the scientific community to increase public understanding of science. However, effective communication skills can benefit scientists in all aspects of their work beyond just public outreach efforts.
This guide highlights key resources for communicating science with both the public and scientific community. Resources in this guide are intended to support STEM students, faculty, and researchers in both improving their communication skills and broadening the impact of their research.
