Data were provided by the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest research program, funded by the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Program (DEB 2025755), US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, and Oregon State University.

Public communications of the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest were compiled and examined to provide basic information on the outreach program from the Andrews Forest, including the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program. This compiled record provides a listing, brief summary, keywords, and analysis of the record of printed public communications concerning the Andrews Forest site, its programs of research, education, and management, and people with high levels of engagement with the Andrews Forest. The intended audiences of the communications examined were the general and informed public. The principal outlets are newspaper, newsletter and magazine articles, journalistic accounts of issues in science journals (e.g., BioScience and Science), books covering science and social issues in the region and nation, and publications of science organizations (e.g., USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station) intended for general, informed readers. Also documented were a small number of books that include discussion of the Andrews Forest program. Several of the communications are opinion pieces authored by Andrews Forest scientists and published in newspapers. This record is distinguished from publications by scientists intended for an audience of other scientists accessed via the scientific literature.
