ENJOI Manifesto for an Outstanding Open Science Communication for OOSC


The Manifesto for an Outstanding Open Science Communication (hereafter OOSC) is a practical and easy-to-use tool targeted to people who are producing, consuming and sharing scientific information. Science communicators, journalists, researchers and citizens can use it as a guideline, a reference, a set of indications to evaluate their work when producing scientific content to be disseminated through a range of media platforms and channels. At the same time, the Manifesto is meant to be used to assess whether the information that one is consuming is high-quality or inaccurate, insufficient, unuseful, if not misleading and therefore unreliable.

This document encapsulates the results of a very complex process: a multi-step effort to identify, assemble and organise a set of Standards, Principles and Indicators for OOSC (SPIs) during various months of work and then to convey them in the current Manifesto. The SPIs result from in-depth desk research, consultation with key experts, exploratory research and, eventually, participatory research involving co-creation and engagement deployed during four Engagement Workshops (EWs) and then four Labs with key stakeholders. These steps have yielded results and insights reassessed in a series of internal ENJOI mutual learning meetings and one ENJOI consensus workshop, facilitated by design and visual tools set up expressly for this purpose.
