Kim Walsh-Childers Co-Edits New Handbook on Science and Health Journalism

Kim Walsh-Childers, University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications Journalism professor,  is the co-editor of eBook “Palgrave Handbook of Science and Health Journalism” published on SpringerLink on April 16.

In the book, Walsh-Childers and Australian National University Associate Professor Merryn McKinnon reviewed the extant literature on the most important issues in health and science journalism and focused on summarizing the relevant research and identifying key questions that are yet to be answered.

Their work explores challenges and best practices in health and science reporting, formats and audiences, key topics such as climate change, pandemics and space science and the ethics and political impacts of science and health journalist practice. With numerous international contributions, the 23 chapters provide a comprehensive overview of an emerging area of journalism studies and science communication.

The book is available as an eBook or as a hardcover edition.
