SciLine: Scientific expertise and context on deadline


"SciLine works directly with U.S. journalists to support the incorporation of scientific evidence and expertise into their news stories. We facilitate one-on-one interviews with scientists, host media briefings on science topics, collect and distribute expert quotes on breaking news, and organize professional training events—with a special emphasis on the needs of local and general assignment reporters. "We also work directly with U.S. and Canadian scientists, recruiting them to serve as experts in all of our services for journalists as well as offering training to prepare them for successful interactions with the media." "SciLine is a free service for journalists and scientists based at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest multidisciplinary scientific society. Editorially independent, nonpartisan, and funded by philanthropies, SciLine has a singular mission of enhancing the amount and quality of scientific evidence in news stories."
