Today we continue our series Single Best, where we ask top science writers and editors to give us their single best piece of advice, given or taken; or their single best idea, reporting trip or memorable experience. Here, Paul Raeburn shares the ideal he always has in mind for the perfect story.
Raeburn is a journalist and blogger, and the author of Do Fathers Matter? The New Science of Fatherhood, to be published for Father’s Day, 2014 by Scientific American/FSG. He is also the chief media critic for the Knight Science Journalism Tracker at MIT.
