Press Releases of Science Journal Articles and Subsequent Newspaper Stories on the Same Topic

This article from Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) documents how scientific news is made and perpetuated. The authors found evidence that "journal articles described in press releases, in particular those described first or second in the press release, are associated with the subsequent publication of newspaper stories on the same topic." Though not a surprising result, the article offers insights into why and what the public considers important in science.
