For years, Creative Commons has been involved in with projects and policy to enable and support the open sharing of scientific information. ESnet has created a discussion email list for engineers, researchers, or others interested in Science DMZ to discuss use cases, best practices and share ideas. Earth and Space Science Resources teach students about features, materials, and processes on Earth and in outer space.
Read the summary of an NAS colloquium to explore research that can improve the effective communication of science to lay audiences. Science A-Z provides a library of developmentally appropriate content to teach students science concepts, literacy skills, and the practices of science and engineering through printable and digital books and other resources.
Popular Science has been reporting on mastodons, a common North American ice age character, for well over a century. In accordance with public policy being concerned about the well-being of its citizens, science policy’s goal is to consider how science and technology can best serve the public.
By responding to public misconceptions about science and evidence and engaging with the media, this active community of 2,000+ researchers is changing the way the public and the media view science and scientists.

While common sense is good enough for most basic activities of daily life (not including an understanding of how television, smartphones, GPSs, and computers work), it is not sufficient to account for the larger reality revealed by science. Taken together with operational best practice, the components of the Science DMZ form a scalable, extensible model for the support of science applications at many research institutions.
