Comunicar ciencia. Una reflexión sobre los modelos de comunicación científica
Date of defense: 06-09-2017

The professional training at Prensa Científica S.A. publishing house led us to make a brief review and analysis of the scientific communication models and differing professional opinion of science This let us establish important facts determining the ways science is communicated. As the media implement the scientific communication models, these are therefore limited by the financial resources and the amount of target people. The spectators’ educational level is not an important factor when the complex relation science-public is not taken to a level beyond the mere search of the enlargement of knowledge or the generation of amazement. In our societies, different communication models are needed, from those aimed at basic scientific understanding to those allowing participation in policy-making.
