Finding fresh takes on science news

The voracious demands of the online news cycle often tempt science journalists to spend a disproportionate amount of time covering new scientific studies. Some results certainly merit media attention, but too much emphasis on individual studies can warp the public’s view of the scientific process. Plus, when dozens of outlets all cover the same story, it can make writers feel…redundant. So I asked a handful of writers and editors how they find fresh takes on science news and summed up what I learned over at The Open Notebook.
