Journalists

Covering current events in science, the environment, technology and health requires a context and reliable sources that respond quickly.

What we offer you

When science hits the headlines, we publish reactions, explanations, and in-depth analysis from reliable sources, capturing both the evidence and the debates. Our library of science journalism resources and the upcoming briefings may be of use to you. Consult our directory of research centres.

How we work

We are on the lookout for any controversial information about science (embargoed or not), in order to react with the agility the media needs. Sign up to access our embargoed contents, all under the Creative Commons licence. Find out more about how we work here.
