Disseminating the results of the investigations is essential for a research centre. Knowledge is used to create critical and reflective thinking, and in our case, to present the palaeontological heritage of the country, to promote respect for the field and encourage new scientific vocations.
Depending on the audience we address, we choose the most appropriate channels to convey our message.
If we want to address the scientific community to validate the result of a piece of research, it must be published in one of the specialized journals intended for the scientific community. Publishing the results of research means sharing our work with the scientific world; this is when the true validation process of the obtained results begins. Publishing the results opens up the debate and sometimes even controversy!
When we address a more general audience, usually the information is channelled through the museum itself and its exhibitions; through the media: the radio, television, newspapers; through activities aimed at schools and families; digital media such as the web, Facebook, our newsletter; and through courses and conferences. The aim is to reach as many people as possible.
