New media and science communication

From the advent of the World Wide Web in the 1990s to the explosion in social media in the twenty-first century, new media are increasingly a major focus of science communication practice, in part because they are touted as enabling greater dialogue about science and increasing the democratisation of scientific information. Research projects in this theme may tackle any topics related to the place and uses of new media in science communication.
