Abstract

The disinformation crisis that has resulted from the consolidation of the Internet and the explosion of social networks has highlighted the importance of scientific journalism to communicate rigorous, contrasted and quality content to society. In this context, both professionally and academical-ly level, the focus is on the discipline and, increasingly, on the role of social networks as a vehicle for promoting scientific dissemination content. This study analyzes, using the scoping review technique, the articles published on science journalism and social networks in the last five years (2017 and 2021) in order to identify research topics and trends, concerns and challenges. The study reveals the influence that social networks are having on current science journalism, highlighting their role as a channel for dissemination and interaction with audiences and engagement with new audiences. In addition to the prominence given to health, environmental and data verification issues. It also warns of the challenge for professionals to improve their performance in order to achieve effective communication through innovative channels and gene-rate visual and interactive content.
