SMC Global Network

Science Media Centres have been established in five countries (the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Japan), and others are opening soon or actively being considered in a host of countries including Germany, China, Denmark, Indonesia, Italy, Norway, Pakistan and the US. While each national Centre is run independently according to the needs of local journalists, all work together closely and are in the process of developing a global network that will become an international force for evidence-based science in the media. The network will also help increase Australian and New Zealand expert representation in the overseas media, including translation of expert comments into other languages, such as Japanese, Chinese and French.

A global website has now been set up at www.sciencemediacentre.net which includes a global charter.
