According to a recent study of Newswise effectiveness, 93% of the research news releases distributed via Newswise receive media coverage, as well as wide distribution on the web.
Embedded images, videos, and audio features help journalists to choose the smart news they want to cover. They can preview a prospective expert source or visualize an illustration that deepens their understanding of important research.
Get your expert in the “first-day” story with Expert Pitch. Respond quickly to breaking news with a brief pitch about your expert, bypassing the need to write an extensive news release. Your pitch will be sent out to reporters via social media feeds including @Expert_Pitch on Twitter, Facebook, and the Expert Pitch section. Newswise members, click “Contribute an Expert Pitch” in the site menu to submit your expert.
Expert Pitch is intended for response to breaking news events covered by major media outlets. For other ways to promote your experts, see Expert Feature below.
The Expert Feature type news release is intended for fully written news releases about your experts, such as a researcher with a book being published, or an op-ed written by a professor. This type of article is typically about your researcher or institution, without being directly in response to a national breaking news story. To submit an expert feature, choose the “Feature” story type on the Newswise contribution form.
In addition to email distribution through the Newswise Wires, all news releases are posted on our source news site, in multiple locations. Each news release is available in the Latest News section at the moment it is released, as well as one of more of the following sections:
Life News includes:
Arts & Humanities
Social & Behavioral Sciences
Law & Public Policy
Releases may be included in the Feature and Breaking News Channels, which are special sections organized by topic. Any news release posted on Newswise relevant to a Breaking or Feature News Channel topic may be added to these sections, increasing the exposure of your news to journalists browsing the Newswise site.
A robust search engine quickly accesses more than 100,000 news releases from 1997 to the present.
Meeting Wires are an opportunity for medical and scientific associations to showcase their latest research findings. Newswise members can request an exclusive wire containing only their press releases related to the Meeting, to be distributed to journalists on a selected day.
