The theoretical orientation of this project is to understand on what basis scientific journalism is structured in Brazil and how it can relate to the concepts of open science and collaborative education. Recognizing science as a topic that should be publicly discussed and journalism as a tool for the dissemination of ideas and opinion formation, it is intended, therefore, to continue the elaboration of the introduction course of scientific journalism launched by the RIDC NeuroMat in 2017. In this sense, it meets FAPESP'S expectations of enhancing spaces of science communicators formation.
