In times of fake news and “alternative” scientific facts, when many question scientific methods, research, and results, it is especially important to communicate science effectively to help the public understand scientific concepts, processes and results. Science communication is the process of informing the scientific community as well as the interested public about science and scientific findings. This in turn enables science-informed decision-making on the issues of our time. Science communication is not only important to improve public scientific literacy, and increases public trust in science and scientists, but is also important for education and science careers. The ability to communicate science is the key to sharing scientific knowledge effectively and increasing the impact of one’s own research.
