Turf wars: Science communication in Australian science and technology degrees?

Schibeci, R. and Harwood, J. (2008) Turf wars: Science communication in Australian science and technology degrees? International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, 3 (6). pp. 87-94.

Abstract

Do Australian science and technology degrees tackle broad social issues as a matter of course? Or do they concentrate almost exclusively on the technical content? This paper analyses degrees in physics, biotechnology and nanotechnology offered by a sample of Australian universities to see the extent to which core studies in social sciences are included. Of the three, physics is the most traditional in offering least contact with social science.
