New Domains of the Science-Society Binomial Open Science, Citizen Science and Informal Contexts of Public Engagement

Elsa Costa e Silva, Marta Entradas & Luisa Massarani

9(2) - 2022 | CECS


This issue of the Lusophone Journal of Cultural Studies (RLEC) seeks to motivate reflection and deepen the knowledge about the new practices that strengthen the relationship between science and society, opening the vast field of knowledge to the wider participation of citizens. The authors’ responses to this call have been mainly translated into contributions addressing the topics of citizen science and, to a lesser extent, related to open science. Proposals of historical and conceptual approaches and experiences in these two domains are also paired with papers tackling the public perception of science and the possibilities of dialogues between society and the scientific enterprise.
