Interactive guidelines: Public communication of data-based research in cities

  title={Interactive guidelines: Public communication of data-based research in cities},
  author={Sergi Trilles and Carlos Granell and Auriol Degbelo and Devanjan Bhattacharya},
  journal={PLoS ONE},
Scientific research results are traditionally published as articles in peer-reviewed conference proceedings or journals. These articles often use technical jargon, which precludes the general public from consuming the results achieved. New ways to communicate scientific results are thus necessary to transfer scientific insights to non-experts, and this work proposes the concept of interactive guidelines to fill this gap. A web tool, called Interactive Guidelines Tool, was developed as a proof… Expand
