Translating Scientific Content into a non-scientific Journal Article

This workshop is designed for students who wish to communicate their work more clearly and effectively to the public, the media, and to scientists outside their own field.

A publication of an article that was produced during the workshop in the magazine D+C  is possible. The magazine D+C „Development and Cooperation“, which is the leading German language publication on development issues, discusses international-development affairs and explores how they relate to other fields of policy-making, such as security, peace, trade, business and environmental protection. The website shares the name D+C/E+Z with a print magazine and an e-paper. Their mission is not to serve as a governmental mouthpiece, but to provide a credible forum for debate, involving government agencies, civil society, the private sector and academia at an international level. This is an excellent workshop to guide, coach, and encourage scientists who are interested in communicating science to wider audiences – an important need.

Lecturer: Hans Dembowski, editor in chief of the development magazine D+C / Development and Cooperation
