Dr Geoff Belknap has written a blog post for the University of Leicester website discussing the Constructing Scientific Communities project and how the public can contribute to scientific research. The post, which includes an update on our Science Gossip project with Zooniverse, is available here.
Professor Sally Shuttleworth and Dr Sally Frampton’s article on the medical strand of the Constructing Scientific Communities project has been published in The Lancet (Volume 385, Number 9987, 27 June 2015). The article discusses the research being undertaken on 19th century medical periodicals which included contributions from outside the medical profession, and the ways in which the public can engage with medical issues in the 21st century.
