Academic environmental communication

This new section of the SEJ web site offers information for people who write about science, and who research scientific topics. Many of these sites offer peer-reviewed articles looking at the challenges, ethics and difficulties in accurately describing scientific developments. This service will be particularly useful for SEJ's nearly 200 academic members, but is open to all. FYI, you can view a list of academic institutions with environmental journalism programs here.
