This first volume comprehensively covers advances in science and technology communication and popularization practice and research (STCP) in China
This book provides an overview of STCP resource and capacity building, science popularization policies, practitioner development, infrastructure construction, and the development of the science popularization industry in China
It reviews the design, organization, monitoring and evaluation of STCP programs in China. A must-have reference book for researchers, students and all with an interest in science communication and the philosophy of science
This book aims to be a reference for researchers studying the promotion of scientific literacy in China, as well as a guide for those interested in promoting scientific awareness. It covers advances in science and technology, communication and popularization practice, and research (STCP) both in China and abroad. Theoretical issues are discussed, and important problems in promoting scientific and technological awareness are identified (e.g.: basic principles, structures, channels of communication and current needs) This bookprovides a summary of the advances in STCP in China in recent years (especially after the issuing of the “National Scientific Literacy Outline”) including STCP resource and capacity building, science popularization policies, practitioner development, infrastructure construction, and the development of the science popularization industry as a whole. At the same time, this book also reviews thedesign, organization, monitoring and evaluation of science and technology communication and popularization programs. It also highlights current STCP trends and developments in China and calls for a greater emphasis to be placed on research into promoting scientific literacy.
