EUCAnet invited Colin Bennett to share some tips and advice about their outreach expertise:
“Be aware of the difficulties faced by journalists in getting accurate stories into print in a timely fashion; be patient; don’t expect journalists to have the time to read lengthy academic articles; try to cultivate certain journalists so that you can call them if you have a likely news story; ensure that they follow you on Twitter; invite interested journalists to scholarly conferences and events.“
Why engage with media ?
“It’s fun…even when you get misquoted! ”
