La comunicació des de la ciència: una assignatura encara pendent

Santiago Ramentol


In order to determine the areas in which scientific communication takes place and, in particular, communication from the field of science, this article establishes five circles. The first includes the interactions within each specialization; the second, the relations within the same branch of science; the third, within science as a whole; the fourth, within the society of knowledge, and the fifth, with society in general. From this starting point, diverse dysfunctions can be observed. In fact, communication works (though not without problems) in the framework of the relations between scientists in the same area of specialization. In this situation, two great channels of lateral communication are analyzed: journals and conferences. Outside of this first circle, many insufficiencies
are detected in the descending communication (including
the communication with other components of the
same branch of science). And communication with the
man in the street is found to be minimal, disordered and
often incoherent.
