The Evidence-Based Communication Guidelines are one of the ERUM project milestones. They support students, young journalists and researchers in the development of their science communication competencies and skills and contribute to a better understanding of the role of media in communicating science and research to non-scientific audiences. The Guidelines are based on research on controversial issues in the news media by the ERUM project team, a survey conducted amongst journalists and media professionals, as well as a literature review. The survey data include information about journalists’ current and former work practices, ethical standards in reporting, fact-checking procedures, disinformation, and COVID-19 challenges to journalism and media.
