The YOSCIWEB project has been set up to analyze how popular scientific web sites construct and renew the image of science and scientists among young people in Europe as there are concerns that this image is not very positive and causes young people to steer away from careers in science. Best Practices and Recommendations Guide outlines some tools and practices, which are considered to be good in transmitting scientific information over the internet by experts and by focus groups from partner countries. The YOSCIWEB consortium was studying how the image of science and scientists is being transmitted through the Internet. The objective was to see how science and scientists were portrayed and how young people perceived these images. Based on the results of these analyses, the partners propose recommendations to science communicators on how to improve the images of science and scientists on websites.
