Abstract

The paper addresses the issues and challenges scientific communication is facing in current scholarly practices both within a specific scientific community and public at large. First, the paper presents methodological groundings for studying communication of results as a particular mechanism of operating with discourse. Such methodological framework focuses on the process of ‘black-boxing’ of scientific results. Further, the authors illustrate a way such results go from a hypothesis to a scholarly output, and call for actions. On the basis of the Online Surveys organized and conducted by the American-Russian Research Laboratory at St Petersburg State University (www.tandem.spbu.ru) for a specific field research in 2017-2018, the authors demonstrate gradual detextualization and generalization of results, which are inherent to the specific way of scientific persuasion. Finally, the authors outline the paths of the current transformation of scientific knowledge production and dissemination which calls for further research problematization.
