This week’s Resource is not a guidebook; it’s a game!
The World Federation of Science Journalists created SciJo, an interactive game that you can play in French or English on your computer or mobile device.
Players can use the game to test their health journalism skills and basic knowledge of concepts related to disease outbreaks.
To advance to the next level and ultimately publish an article, players must do the following:

  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of infection, vaccination, and treatment.
  • Choose reliable sources.
  • Select the best questions for interviews.
  • Verify information from conflicting sources.
