The Public Face of Science

The Public Face of Science is an ongoing three-year research project conducted by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Launched in 2016, this interdisciplinary project "is dedicated to exploring the complex and evolving relationship between scientists and the public" and aims "to examine how trust in science is shaped by individual experiences, beliefs, and engagement with science." Here, readers can access the reports, research papers, and other publications produced by this project, many of which are available at no cost. For example, the project's most recent research paper "The Public Face of Science Across the World" (published in July 2019), presents the findings of a study that analyzed the 2010-2014 World Values Survey to evaluate public attitudes towards science across 54 countries. Another paper entitled "Science During Crisis" (published in January 2019) makes recommendations regarding "the application of science during disasters," including best practices for scientific procedures and communication as well as relevant research and policy priorities. The Public Face of Science is led by its steering group chair, Richard A. Meserve, the President Emeritus of the Carnegie Institution for Science.
