Leading up to the 2020 election, Journalist’s Resource will expand its health coverage with roundups and summaries of peer-reviewed research on health policy, as well as tip sheets with best practices for reporting on research.

For over a decade, Journalist’s Resource has been a trusted source for journalists seeking to find and understand peer-reviewed research on a variety of topics. JR’s weekly e-mail newsletter now has more than 51,000 subscribers and more than 53,000 people follow JR on Twitter. As newsrooms become increasingly short-staffed, JR helps to bridge the gap between academia and journalism to inform high-quality reporting. JR has informed numerous articles from large and small media organizations.
