The American Geophysical Union's Sharing Science is geared towards helping earth and space scientists communicate about their work and its value with broader audiences, such as journalists, students, and policymakers. Of particular interest to those new to science communication will be the "tools" and "practice" tabs in the box on the right sidebar. Readers will find links to numerous communication tips and outreach resources, including (for example) ways to identify potential audiences, tips for using social media for science outreach, and guidelines for crafting a plain-language summary of your research, among many other ideas. Towards the bottom of the Sharing Science homepage are "Quick Answers" to pressing questions such as "Help! A reporter's on the phone--what should I say?" Although this resource is tailored for scientists in geophysical disciplines, scientists of all stripes will likely be able to find helpful tips at Sharing Science for engaging with the public about their work.
