similar roles are some of the reasons why ethics need to be restored in science communication. The paper will use both the qualitative and quantitative analyses so that the ethical lines in science communication can be established. In the research, it will be important to use the qualitative analysis to get first-hand information from the professionals through questionnaires and interviews. In the study, qualitative

analysis was also used as some of the data was extracted from peered journals and articles. Comment by Biely Family: Remove “The” and begin with Scientists. This flows better Comment by Biely Family: Try saying “lacked focus on professional practices” Introduction Science communication can be described as a means used to pass information from one person to an audience regarding scientific information. The kind of information being passed across from the scientist to the audience is very important as it plays a major role in the decision-making process of the people who are being addressed. The ethical issues that are involved in these cases involve moral righteousness and use of proper channels to communicate the issues that need to be addressed. Scientific communication is greatly regarded as proper moral conduct (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine U.S., 2017). Communication made by different scientists and those involved in policy- making processes, at times, raise concerns regarding ethical issues that are associated with science communication. It is important that all scientists put into consideration the use of ethical science communication. The most appropriate means of passing information, that is understood by non-scientists, should be used at all times. The scientists also need to give

accurate and honest opinions in their presentations with regards to the associated with reasoned out conclusions. Ensuring that the targeted audience understands the information being passed across is considered ethically right and should be down in the right way possible. Comment by Biely Family: Remove “The” and begin with Scientists Comment by Biely Family: This sentence is confusing to me when reading out loud. Comment by Biely Family: Re-word, sentence is confusing.Suggestion: Ensuring that the targeted audience fully comprehends all information being given is considered ethically correct and should always be the intended focus. The scientists should not omit information that would show if there are negative implications that might affect the conclusions made at the end of the presentation. In most of the areas, the communicators have to show practical implications and involve the audience in democratic engagements. This will help a lot when it comes to creating chances for impactful discussions about the role of the people involved in science communication. Scientific communication, in a nutshell, can be defined as the force used in the field to enhance responsibility, and human respect and integrity. Ethics in science communication must, therefore, involve treating the audience with dignity and observing the codes of conduct. This kind of communication is supposed to help the non-scientists to understand and accept the scientific concepts. This paper will address the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
