From Latin disclosure, disclosure is the action and effect of disclosing (disseminating, promoting or publishing something to make it available to the public). For example: “The German scientist carried out a tireless task for the disclosure of this discovery”, “We had a good product, but we failed to disclose it”, “The president was outraged by the disclosure of the issues discussed in his last meeting with the ministers”.
Disclosure, therefore, can be associated with the task of press and communication. What is published or broadcast by the media is being disclosed, since said content remains within the reach of society. That is why when a company wants to promote a novelty, it usually goes to the press so that this is the vehicle that brings its news to the people. According to Abbreviationfinder, FD stands for Full Disclosure.
The task of processing and disseminating scientific knowledge in a way that is accessible to the general public is known as scientific dissemination. This activity is usually carried out by scientists or specialized journalists who have extensive knowledge of the subject in question and who put their efforts into translating scientific language into colloquial speech.
Scientific communication can take place in any format, such as a magazine, a television program or an Internet site. Some television channels specialize in popular science, such as the Discovery Channel. Among the most famous personalities who dedicated themselves to popular science, Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking stand out.
It is worth mentioning that, in some cases, scientific dissemination loses its value since what is disseminated is false or erroneous information. Unreliable sources, combined with the desire for fame and notoriety have given rise to a large number of documentaries of an illegitimate nature, and the ease with which it is possible to reach the masses today gives more space to this type of fraud..
The Internet is, without a doubt, the most valuable tool when it comes to disseminating any subject or work, since it offers us different ways of reaching people and obtaining answers and opinions. Within this cybernetic universe, social networks are the easiest and most direct way to make our ideas public; they allow us to be constantly connected with a potentially considerable number of people from all over the world.
Among the most outstanding benefits of social networks is the fact that each user can share information with a number of people who do not necessarily know each other, and that they repeat the procedure to start a chain of disclosure of incalculable dimensions. Whether we want to spread the word about our latest book, or advocate for the defense of animals, social media is a great starting point.
On the other hand, always depending on our objectives, the Internet offers endless services for dissemination. A very popular example in recent years is crowdfunding, which is also called micro -patronage or massive financing, among others. Basically, it is a channel to make an idea known and get financial support from those who are interested in it, without the need for physical, face-to-face contact.
Thanks to crowdfunding portals, it is possible to bring ventures to people all over the planet without any kind of prior financial investment: all we have to do is register for free on one of the various sites that offer this service and publish our project, accompanied by of an attractive video in which our objectives are clearly explained. In general, to receive the approval of the company it is necessary to receive a certain number of positive votes from other users.
