Science Communication: Take Charge of It!  

Scientists have a responsibility to share the meaning and implications of their work, but receive little training in communication, and often feel unprepared to communicate with the public, the media, public officers and others outside their own field. In this seminar, I will present a structured approach to writing a scientific paper, focusing on the preparation of a high-impact paper in physics. I will also share some general thoughts on science communication drawn from my experience as a writer, editor, press officer and scientific consultant to policy makers.
