Resource of the Week: When is science newsworthy?

The American Geophysical Union has a pile of great resources for interacting with the media. Two we’re highlighting today are focused on helping you discern whether the science story idea you have is newsworthy. These tips apply whether you are trying to get press coverage or wanting to write about your own science.

Description on YouTube:

“What makes a good science news story? How do science reporters choose stories to write about? How can scientists work with reporters when they have a newsworthy story? In this webinar, AGU’s Sharing Science program along with reporters Carolyn Gramling of Science News and Ben Guarino of The Washington Post will demystify what reporters are looking for in a news story and how science makes it from a research paper to the front page.”
