Communicating science in organizational contexts: toward an “organizational turn” in science communication research


Schäfer, Mike S; Fähnrich, Birte (2020). Communicating science in organizational contexts: toward an “organizational turn” in science communication research. Journal of Communication Management, 24(3):137-154.

Abstract

Research on science communication in organizational contexts is scarce - even though many cases can be found where organizations from science and beyond communicate about science-related issues, or where organizational contexts have an impact on the communication of individual scientists and scientific organizations. Therefore, it is time for an 'organizational turn' in science communication research, and for more scholarly emphasis on the specific cases that science-related communication in, from and about organizations presents. We believe such an approximation would benefit both science communication research and analyses of strategic and organizational communication. This special issue of the "Journal of Communication Management" is a step in this direction: It compiles commentaries from leading scholars in the respective fields as well as research articles coming from various disciplines and conceptual as well as methodological paradigms.
