Difficult or easy to get in touch with scientists?

Didier said:

I also would like to question the way we interact with scientists: Matteo mentioned direct contact, and Des favours it too. Do you need a strong network for this? Maybe this question requires a new thread.

Very often, in the last few years, science writers are relying onto research institutes press offices and other intermediate entities to actually deal with the scientific community.

Do you think that direct contact with scientific community is feasible or that science communication groups, networks and associations might actually play an important role as intermediate players and as important communication channels?

I never experienced any difficulty while editing popular science, instead this seems the case with educational publishing and research in science education.
Just a while ago I was told by a friend of mine – an educational researcher himself and a precious source! – that, as an employee of a publishing company, I probably wouldn't be welcome into his environment. I guess this is due to some kind of uneasiness in sharing ideas and projects between a public institute and a private enterprise (but are our goals so incompatible, after all? I don't think so).

I don't know of a network that includes both publishers and educational researchers yet. Please let me know about one emoticon

Hallo everybody, we'll move the discussion to day2, but before we do that, is anybody giving some indications to Martha as with regard to her question? Actually, publishers do seem to be usually not included in usual science&society networks. or maybe I am wrong?
