Communications resources for researchers

We have pulled together a number of communications resources for researchers to help disseminate research findings to a range of audiences.

It is important that you send all research outputs and dissemination materials to the Communications Manager before they are published. The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) not only expects but requires NIHR School for Public Health Research support or funding to be acknowledged in all research outputs. The NIHR monitors our outputs and uses them to measure our performance and has an impact on future funding for the School.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for or need further advice, please contact: sphr.comms@newcastle.ac.uk.

Research briefing

Research briefings are two page, easy to read, clear, concise documents which highlight the key messages and findings arising from a piece of academic research. They are primarily used to relay research findings to a policy audience. If you are planning to develop a policy briefing about School funded research you must use this template.

NIHR SPHR A strategy for communications

The School has an important communications responsibility, both in respect of its research and in relation to building closer relationships between public health researchers and practitioners. Fundamentally, if we want more evidence-informed practice, we need more practice informed evidence, therefore effective communication and knowledge exchange are essential.

NIHR SPHR Publication policy

The purpose of this policy is to:
• Encourage the development of publications across SPHR
• Ensure a consistent approach to planning and writing publications funded by SPHR
• Ensure that the contribution of all partners to our outputs is properly acknowledged and attributed
• Adhere to the requirements of National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) and Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC)
