Scientific publishing for the general public is an interesting field with many things to consider. The people writing about science for the mass audience who are not particularly involved in science can be challenging. Researchers first publish in primary journals where their articles must go under a peer-review process in order to assure validity in their research and findings. But how does the mass public come to learn of new scientific discoveries if they can’t understand data and figures and scientific jargon? The answer is scientific journals such as Scientific American, the Discovery Journal, Popular Science, and National Geographic. These journals allow for the general public to stay informed of new scientific knowledge and discoveris along with general new stories. For those interested in science but do not have the background to understand primary sources of literature, these more relaxed journals with common language are the way to go for new science news.
