There are now science media centres in six countries (UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Germany) with others about to open or are actively being considered in a host of countries including Denmark, China, Norway, Italy, the US and Pakistan. The centres collaborate extensively and are in the process of developing a global network that has the potential to become an international force for evidence-based science in the media. The network will also help increase Australian expert representation in the overseas media, including translation of expert comments into other languages, such as Japanese, Chinese and French.

A global website has now been set up at www.sciencemediacentre.net which includes a global charter.
