Ethnographic Study of Editorial Offices: "It is important to build a bond of trust".

Ethnographic Study of Editorial Offices: "It is important to build a bond of trust".

In an interview with wissenschaftskommunikation.de, Irene Broer talks about her ethnographic study of editorial offices at the Science Media Center Germany (SMC).
The questions were asked by Inga Dreyer.
Ms Broer, how did you get the idea to get involved with the Science Media Center in Cologne?
I am part of the "MeWiKo" project, in which the Science Media Center is a cooperation partner. "MeWiKo" stands for media and scientific communication. It is about the effect of external science communication on scientific impact. So for example:  When scientific studies are reported in journalism, what effect does that have on how often they are shared in social media and cited by other scientists?  That is the overarching topic. In this project, we at the Hans-Bredow-Institut are primarily interested in the question of what influence editorial practices have on external science communication - such as journalism, for example. The Science Media Center was a natural subject for research because it is an interface between science and journalism and may have a major influence on how German science journalism selects its topics.
