Science Last Fortnight

It is more than an year now. We started with reporting recent scientific work done within Pune every Sunday in Sakaal Times, a Pune based newspaper. After five issues of the column titled Science This Week, we increased the coverage to science done in Maharashtra.

sakaaltimes-14feb2016 After ten weeks we increased our coverage to Indian science. And shifted our platform to Current Science, the leading interdisciplinary journal in India. From March last year, we have been bringing out a fortnightly column in the journal. Slowly, but steadily, we are building up the capacity to report Indian science to Indian citizens. And this year, the column increased from two pages to four pages. The most recent issue of the column titled Science Last Fortnight can be found here.

It is not merely the pages that have increased. The capacity of the people have been increasing too. From 300 word reports based on single papers, some have gone on to write 1500 word reports based on a larger number of papers. They are developing the ability to extract relevant information from each paper, to synthesise the information to create coherent content that is engaging from the beginning to the end. For a recent example, see here.
