Science Writing and Communication

Science writers help communicate new findings or topics of interest in science to the public or a targeted audience. Science writers can be employed to work on professional scientific journals, which are mostly read by scientists, or more broader publications, such as the New York Times or Washington Post. Scientific editors are generally employed by professional journals to review manuscripts submitted by the scientific community and determine whether they are appropriate for publication.
