The Minds

Science belongs to everyone, and it matters. The culture of science must go past the doors of academia, into the far reaches of society. 

Failing to take evidence–something we find from a place of privilege– and share it with those who may benefit reflected our priorities. We must incentivize and see value in engaging the public and encourage discussion with all communities.

Sharing with the public is precisely that which gives us a better world, so our actions must reflect that. We strive to meet the public where they are and respect them as intelligent and capable of understanding. Study after study shows the American public is mostly scientifically literate. Still, misunderstandings persist. 

Scientists must see communicating as part of the scientific process. We must share what we’ve
learned in a way that reaches people from all walks of life.

NOVEL SCIENCE serves as space where people can find answers to their questions, writers they trust, candid commentary, and, above all else, people who genuinely care.
