dc.description.abstract Survey research reveals journalists' and scientists' dissatisfaction with science in the media. Little content-analysis research is available. This article presents a quantitative and qualitative content analysis of articles published in three newspapers in Sydney, Australia, in June-August 1999, when the Pacific Science Congress was held. It indicates limited frameworks mediating science knowledge, but in mote complex combinations than recognised. Examples of accessible informative and educational science journalism are examined with suggestions for additional refinement. en_US
