"The Influence of Video News Releases on the Topics Reported in Science Journalism: An Explorative Case Study on the Relationship Between Science Public Relations and Science Journalism" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-06-18 <>

Abstract: A rise in time and cost pressure has led to video news releases (“footage”) becoming increasingly popular in television editorial offices. Footage represents broadcastable video material which is made available to television stations by companies and institutions for reasons of public relations (PR). Its use is, however, problematical since editorial contents can thus be influenced by third parties. Against the background of the intereffication model of journalism and PR the question of the influence of footage on television reporting is explored on the basis of the example of science journalism. To this end, in a case study 44 German science journalists were asked how they dealt with this material. The results lead to the conclusion that footage is handled pragmatically. In addition, within the framework of a contents analysis of transmission data relating to reporting on the Max Planck Society, the influence of footage material over a period of nine and a half months was determined (n=274). It was revealed here that almost one third of the reporting was directly attributable to PR material whereby contributions induced by footage were represented to a greater extent and were longer than reports based on news releases. The influence on private stations was greater than that on public-service channels. This therefore raises the question about binding rules on how to deal with footage.

Abstract: This paper is part of panel 031015: Questioning the
Applicability of the Natural Science Model to Political Science
In the spirit of contemporary science studies, as they might be
represented by Andrew Pickering, Karin Knorr Cetina, Bruno Latour, John
Law, or Michel Callon, this paper follows the actors into the mangle of
practices to examine critically the extraordinary understanding of, as
well as the high regard for, the natural science model in contemporary
American political science. Many critiques have been made of this
model, but it remains fairly well-entrenched in most subfields of the
discipline. By looking at this issue from the perspectives of actor
network theory, the social construction of knowledge, or the political
economy of knowledge production, this paper explores how and why the
natural science model continues to be accepted as natural, scientific,
and a model, especially in the modern American research university. It
makes these moves in order to point toward other understandings of how
political scientists as actors might, and, in fact, do operate in many
other different networks of knowledge production that do not perpetuate
the mythologies of model natural sciences as the natural science model
favored in the modern research university. It asks if, in fact, the
same clusters of educational and scientific institutions, which have
helped to create and sustain such model sciences, are themselves
changing. And, since they do seem to be changing considerably, then
American political scientists must rethink their disciplinary practices
as they enter their second century as an organized
professional-technical society of scholars.

Abstract: This paper will analyze constructions of science and science learning within and among the Zuni Nation in New Mexico and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation in Connecticut based on an empirical study of a National Science Foundation grant titled “Archaeology Pathways for Native Learners” (grant #0307858). Hosted by the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center from 2004-2007, this grant sought to engage middle-school age Native and non-Native youth in informal science learning through archaeology. This paper will focus on the evaluation methodologies constructed by the consulting firm for Zuni and Mashantucket, and conclusions drawn about student learning through those partnerships.

Abstract: Richard Feynman keynoted the 1966 NSTA convention, addressing, “What Is Science,” and speculating on student misunderstandings. More than what you think, how you think matters. Yet public trust in scientists has been decreasing. Why?

Abstract: Our study focuses on the role of mass communication in the process of the governance of science in Germany and regards political, scientific and journalistic actors. We discuss and integrate the theoretical concepts of governance, social differentiation, actor-structure dynamics and mediatization. We also present a methodological concept that is based on triangulation of content analysis and interviews with decision makers in science, politics and media. This allows us to analyze media content (e.g. media frames, media agenda), media effects (e.g. frame setting, agenda setting) and influences on media (e.g. strategic framing, frame building, agenda building) as interwoven aspects of mediatized governance constellations. The guiding research questions are: (1) How do politics and sciences observe each other via mass media? (2) How do such observations influence decisions? And (3) what differences exist regarding diverse scientific traditions?
