Welcome to the Science Journalism Blog. We hope that it will facilitate the debate about the issues that makes science journalism a trade in its own right. Does balance really work in articles on science? How do we deal with the peer review system? Why is there so little investigative science reporting being done? Should science journalism inform or inspire the public, and how? Can medical writers be generalists? Are science writers science journalists?

We hope that both the big and the little questions that are on the minds of journalists in both developed and developing countries will contribute to the ongoing professionalization of this wonderful occupation. We invite journalists, students of science journalism, scientists and science news consumers from around the globe to join in the debate.
