Researchers working for universities, governments or private companies
are doing vital investigation into issues – such as clean water, food
security and sexual health – that directly affect the everyday life of
people around the world. However, they often communicate the results
only to other researchers.
Research findings can create powerful stories for news and features that
are directly relevant to audiences.
This briefing offers support and ideas for journalists on using research
to create debates and inform people of problems and possible solutions
that can change or even save their lives.
