"Communication and critique are important for the public understanding of and progress in science. In this PLOSCast, Elizabeth speaks with Hilda Bastian, an Editor at PubMed Commons. She connects her current work at PubMed Commons and her previous experience as a consumer health advocate in Australia to the importance of communication and critique of science in the public sphere. As she says, “If we want to have scientific communities where [people] have an equal chance of being heard, we have to have a standard of communication that allows people to feel comfortable raising a question and not getting attacked for it.” In the interview, she offers some advice for reporters and advocates for communicating science to the general public and to other scientists."
