Using the Web To Communicate Science
One of the most dramatic changes in dissemination of scientific information has been the prolific use of the World Wide Web. In only 3 years, the Web has gained not only a wider acceptance as a medium among the general public, but it has become a common format for scientific discourse as well.
Listed in the column on the right are some examples of the OHER-funded Web sites that function as data centers, online journals, and electronic newsletters. The Web's wide variety of formats can be used to tailor information for better communication.
Other strengths of communicating science on the Web include:
An exciting aspect of communicating research results on the Web is that this is the first generation of Web technology. Further innovative applications are on the horizon, and BER's accomplishments will continue to be shared among scientists and the public using this dynamic medium.
