    This is definitely an interesting and a much under explored topic in general. I find it interesting how the onus has been consistently placed on the scientists to engage in communication to non-academic publics, but the research focus has been largely been maintained on the publics.
    I think that’s in large part why i decided to focus on the scientists’ experience in communication of scientific research for non-academic audiences as the general area of inquiry for my phd.

    Question: Is research communication synonymous with scholarly communication?

    • Thanks for the link and the question. Is research communication synonymous with scholarly communication? I would not say synonymous but that scholarly communication is a category within science communication, which can take many forms. So definitely a very valid dimension of it!
