Communicating Trust and Trusting Science Communication: Some Critical Remarks

Alan Irwin, Maja Horst

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


Written in response to a previous article by Weingart and Guenther [2016]
in JCOM, this letter aims to open up some critical issues concerning the
‘new ecology of communication’. It is argued that this evolving ecology
needs to be openly explored without looking back to a previous idyll of
‘un-tainted’ science.
