Profiling York Research Stories
The Research Forecast is compiled by the Office of the Vice-President Research & Innovation to assist York Communications in identifying upcoming research stories by York researchers and/or York students that may interest the wider public and could be profiled in external media and/or Yfile.
We invite researchers and others to submit items to the Research Forecast:
*When you have advance information about a significant finding, publication, exhibit, event or other product of research that will be made public in the coming weeks or months; or
*You know of a research project that should interest the wider public even though it is still in progress with no findings or products available yet.
Please use the template below to submit your story for consideration.
Brief description: Describe in 100 words or less the research finding or story.
Target audience: Who will this story likely appeal to?
Briefly describe the benefit of the research to the target audience.
The news angle: What do you think makes this story interesting or newsworthy to your target audience? What would be a good headline in the newspaper for this story?

Do you have any photos, video footage, brief bio/profile or background resources/links available to the research: Y/N? (If yes, please list).
