Good science is plain
There is at present a tug-of-war raging online between evidence and ideology with truth the loser. Pitted against privately loud and colourful voices of science denial, quiet public science rarely gets a shout, jeopardising rational discourse and policy-making. With a single, regulated platform for professional and citizen publishing we can change this. A voluntary scheme of plain pages would significantly reduce the ability of loud and colourful privately-funded voices to drown out bias-free public science. Plain fact will take centre stage. You can help make this platform the gold standard for science communication: please read our infographic below and share it with as many friends and colleagues as possible, and sign up.
