    We Say: ‘...’, They Say: ‘...’: How Plant Science Experts Draw on Reported Dialogue to Shelve User Concerns.Bart Gremmen, Cees van Woerkum, Hedwig te Molder & Karen Mogendorff - 2014 - Discourse and Communication 8 (2):137-154.
    This study aims to increase insight into the uses of experts’ references to physically absent technology users in government-funded plant science. A discursive psychological analysis of expert board meetings shows that experts invoke various forms of reported dialogue/thoughts and dispositional statements when problems with technology and with program funding are discussed. Forms of reported dialogue serve to demonstrate that experts engage in dialogue with users, understand and are reasonable about users’ concerns, and that the content of user concerns does not (...)

    Environmental Problems and the Use of Information: The Importance of the Policy Context. [REVIEW]Cees van Woerkum & Puk van Meegeren - 1990 - Knowledge in Society 3 (3):44-49.
    Factual information plays a vital role in public awareness of environmental problems, and in governmental interventions that this awareness provokes. There is a growing need for new information to define and explore these problems, and to allow consequent political decision-making. This article examines the policy process, making a distinction between knowing and deciding. It will become clear that information and policy, both of which arise when a minimal level of problem-consciousness is reached, are the two important prime movers toward a (...)
