The Covering Science Slack

The Open Notebook

"The Open Notebook‘s Covering Science Slack is a diverse, supportive peer-mentoring community for local and general assignment reporters and editors.

"This community includes local and general-assignment reporters and editors, as well as a smaller number of experienced science journalists who serve as mentors within the group. Members are invited to seek (and offer) advice on any topic related to covering science, such as how to exchange ideas on topics such as finding suitable expert sources, refining story angles, evaluating scientific studies and claims, making sense of new findings and their implications, and more."
