4. Panel on 'researchers facing the media', Colquhoun, Donald, Mellor, Turney (Circling the Square I)
From Andrew Gibson
The session covered revolutions in academic publishing (such as post-publication peer-review), analysis of the BBC’s coverage of new scientific findings, communications training for young researchers, ‘publish or perish’ and ‘impact’ culture, and the changing media ecosystem. It was followed by a Q&A about, among other things, public trust in scientists, the potential benefits of the impact agenda and the importance of YouTube.
