A new model of the relationship between science and communication

This is a version of the “How to see Ghosts” talk, which I use at the beginning of communications training courses. Its purpose is to present a model of science communication that I have developed as the basis of these courses. I think this model has profound implications for the way science is communicated to very diverse audiences, the way science is taught, and the way research is conducted.

This version of the presentation was delivered as the first half of an on-line workshop for the FZU in Prague, May 5, 2021.

If you find this interesting, please share it with your colleagues.

I edit manuscripts of all types and teach the full range of scientific communication skills.
