Watch for Ohio State faculty presentations on Twitter Oct. 19-20

Welcome! Here you will find details about social media coverage of ScienceWriters2014.

Thirteen Ohio State faculty researchers will present “New Horizons in Science” talks Sunday and Monday (Oct. 19-20) during ScienceWriters2014, the annual combined meeting of the National Association of Science Writers and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, hosted this year by The Ohio State University.

Many of the attending science writers are prolific users of social media, so most talks – by Ohio State faculty and scientists from other institutions – will be live-Tweeted.
