Amplifying Faculty Published Research
Research Briefs are concise, 350-500 word summaries of research that has been published in a journal and linked online. The core information for a Research Brief is written by faculty with the goal of making the research understandable to a lay audience. Research Briefs are distributed to targeted local, state, national, and international media, posted to the News & Events website and shared on social media. An online form is available to easily guide faculty through summarizing published research for this media- and audience-friendly format.
