Readers respond:Pro tips from scholars for journalists (and vice versa)

Carmen Nobel, program director: 

Last month, in hopes of providing an opportunity for our readers to learn from each other, I posed two questions in this newsletter. My question to the scholars: Have you noticed any common mistakes in news stories about academic research? And to the journalists: What’s one thing you’d like academic researchers to understand about journalism? The answers were thoughtful, insightful and (mostly) respectful. I look forward to posing more questions next year.
