Knowledge Translation and Strategic Communications: Unpacking Differences and Similarities for Scholarly and Research Communications

We’ve just published an article looking at the differences and similarities between KT and communications!  This is often a hot topic.This issue has come up a lot, at our Scientist KT Trainings and in conversation with KTPs and researchers.  The boundaries between the two professions are somewhat strained, and so we hope this analysis will continue the conversation toward a more flexible state of affairs in organizations that employ both KTPs and communications professionals.  We hope you enjoy the piece!  Please feel free to comment and share your point of view.
