Science writing: An examination into science writer writing behaviours, motivations, and source preferences

This research project aims to ascertain the state of science writing and its authors, encompassing research questions like:

  • Are science communicators, especially science writers, qualified and knowledgeable enough about science to be writing about it?
  • What sources do science writers utilise, and what what preferences do they have?
  • Do science writers of different mediums focus on using different sources? 
  • What, if any, are the differences between blogging science writers and their non-blogging counterparts?
