Sense about Science

sense-about-scienceSense About Science is an independent charitable trust promoting good science and evidence in public debates.

They work with scientists to:

  • respond to inaccuracies in public claims about science, medicine, and technology
  • promote the benefits of scientific research to the public
  • help those who need expert help contact scientists about issues of importance
  • brief non-specialists on scientific developments and practices

There is a wealth of information on this website from topics such as Malaria and MRI scans to Radiation and Stem Cell Research. One area of potential interest to staff and students is the Peer Review section, which includes a handy guide to the Peer Review process in an easy to understand way.
