Scientific communication, understood as the process of publicly transferring and disseminating scientific knowledge, plays a key role in society's development. Science influences and conditions all fields of human life: professional, intellectual, those related to health, well-being, recreation, the physical environment, etc. A society that understands and has access to new knowledge and new technologies has a greater critical ability to take decisions, and is more prepared to face new future challenges.
