Words nearby dissemination
What does dissemination mean?
Dissemination is the act or process of disseminating—distributing, spreading, broadcasting, or dispersing widely.
The word is especially used in reference to the distribution of information, or things that contain information, like files and documents.
It is also associated with the official release of such information by organizations, such as the dissemination of a press release by a company or the dissemination of information to the public by a government agency.
Example: Our chief media officer is responsible for the dissemination of press releases to various outlets.
Where does dissemination come from?
The first records of the word dissemination come from around the 1640s. The verb form disseminate is recorded earlier, around 1600. It comes from the Latin verb dissēmināre, from sēmināre, “to sow,” from sēmen, “seed.”
Sometimes, the dissemination of information is like the scattering of seeds in a field, with the goal being to spread it far and wide to the largest number of people possible—like when someone sends out a company-wide email. Other times, dissemination of information may involve a more select set of recipients, such as a press release that’s only provided to certain journalists or news organizations. Sometimes, it happens in a much less organized way, such as on the internet, where the dissemination of information (and misinformation) is rapid and often unpredictable.
