Do you have new and interesting – even outstanding – results that you wish to be recognized by your scientific colleagues, or understood by the public? Do you want to convey your ideas to policy decision makers? Communicating Science is the book to consult. Separate sections offer advice on reaching peers, the general public or decision makers.
