First Argentinean Anthology of Best Science Articles

April 2, 2013 posted in Associations
The Argentine Network of Science Journalism just published its first print anthology of "the best science articles". The articles were published in national and regional media during the year 2012.

Some 40 Argentine science journalists and writers wrote the stories gathered for the publication. Titled "Contar La Ciencia” (Telling Science), the book is the first ever of its kind published by a Latin American science writers’ association.

“The whole idea was to show what science journalists are doing in the country right now”, says Valeria Román, secretary of the Argentine Network of Science Journalism, who has an article in the anthology explaining how the Argentinean Puna, a high, dry and cold plateau, has an environment similar to the planet Mars.

The book is being distributed free to journalists, scientists, libraries, and schools, thanks to support from the Foundation Mundo Sano, an NGO that supports ‘neglected diseases’ research in Latin America. The book (in Spanish, of course) can be downloaded free at:

Already, the Argentine Network is planning the next edition.
