My writing has taken me up in a Blackhawk helicopter, down in a Navy submarine, and on the trail of a snake man through rattlesnake dens.

***  From Paige Brown:

 

In August, 2013, I started conducting a wide online survey of science journalists and bloggers to better understand why and how science research is translated into news. Nearly 1,000 science journalists and bloggers participated in this survey last year. As a continuation of a science communication project for my PhD research at Louisiana State UniversityI am now introducing Part II of this survey – a follow-up to answer more questions and confirm some intriguing results from Part I. (But you needn’t have participated in Part I to participate in Part II now!)

 

If you are a journalist, blogger, freelance writer, magazine writer, TV producer, radio announcer, podcast producer, or anything in between, I’m asking you to participate in this online survey. By participating in this survey, which only takes 15 minutes to complete, journalists, bloggers and other communicators can help me understand when and why science makes its way from research publication to news story.

Once you’ve completed this survey, you will also have the chance to read an abstract and summary of the results from Part I, which have now been submitted for publication. I will also hopefully be blogging about the results of Part I and Part II soon at Scientific American blogs!
