Article on climate change co-authored by Dimitrinka Atanasova published in Public Understanding of Science

An article co-authored by Dr Dimitrinka Atanasova, Information School and Dr Giuseppe Veltri, University of Leicester, has been published in Public Understanding of Science. Their article ‘Climate change onTwitter: Content, media ecology and information sharing behaviour’ studied the content, use of sources and information sharing in over 60,000 tweets using automatic thematic analysis, semantic network analysis and text classification. 
Findings about a major role still being played by traditional media come amid increasing media coverage of the United Nations climate conference COP21 taking place in Paris from 30 November until 11 December 2015.
