    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 talk, I will discuss how our journal Physics (htttp://physics.aps.org) strives to communicate research to a broad audience and share some thoughts and tips on science communication from my experience as a writer, editor, press officer and scientific consultant to policy makers.
