Science writers describe discoveries and commercial developments in all branches of science, engineering, medicine, and environmental science. They explain the impact these discoveries have on the lives of average individuals.

Science writers usually work in one of four career areas: science journalism, public communications, technical writing in industry, and editing. Science journalists write articles for general circulation magazines, science magazines geared to the general public, magazines for scientists and engineers, and newspapers. Some work for television and radio networks. Science writers specializing in public communications prepare press releases and reports for federal and state government agencies, research universities, research institutes, and professional societies. Those working at universities and research institutes often assist researchers in preparing grant proposals. Technical writers in industry prepare technical bulletins, technical advertising, and press releases, and they assist in writing technical papers. Science editors edit articles for science and technology journals, magazines, and books, as well as government reports.
