In this exercise, science communicators were invited to participate in a research study about your day-to-day professional experiences, challenges and decisions while communicating research or science with public, non-academic audiences. This study followed regular reports over twelve months to track what happens for practitioners in science communication over this timeframe.
The Diary Study has come to an end, thank you to all who participated.
GlobalSCAPE is implementing a Mobility Scheme to help fund science communication professionals from around the world to attend professional development workshops. Participants have been supported in building networks within the field of science communication and had the opportunity to take part in science communication workshops.
Through participating in GlobalSCAPE, science communicators had the opportunity to have their voices heard. Participants’ experiences in science communication have been taken into account in providing an overall picture of the field of science communication, including the challenges faced by science communicators.
As a “thank you” for participating in the study, the project is offering incentives, typically in the form of electronic vouchers. Participants from low-income countries could be eligible for incentives with a value up to €500 per person depending on the total number of participants. The amount a participant receives depends on the extent of participation (how long you stay in the study).
