Public Registration If you are not a journalist or news contributor, you would need to register as Public. You can choose your own username and password. An email will be sent to your email account confirming your registration. You can change your details anytime in My Account.
Journalist Registration Journalists have access to contact details of experts in Ask an Expert and embargoed news. To qualify for journalist registration, you would need to provide proof of your status as a journalist. This includes providing proof of by-lined publications either online or by fax and post or contact details of your editor or manager. Your registration will be approved by ResearchSEA staff when we are able to verify your details. An email will be sent to your email account confirming your registration. You can change your details anytime in My Account.
Contributor Registration Contributors are able to submit news and information to ResearchSEA. To qualify for contributor account, you would need to have the explicit permission from your institution to submit information to ResearchSEA. We would require one person from your institution to act as a Primary Contributor. This would usually be your Press Officer or International Relations Officer. The Primary Contributor can then nominate as many persons as they like from your institution to submit information on behalf of your institution. If you have not been nominated by the Primary Contributor but would like to contribute, we will confirm your permission status with the Primary Contributor from your institution. Your registration will be approved by ResearchSEA staff when we are able to verify your details and permission status. An email will be sent to your email account confirming your registration. You can change your details anytime in My Account. If you are registering as the Primary Contributor, you will need to add main contact details and summary of background of your institution. The institutions background and contact details will be stored in the Institutions page. All other articles submitted by you and other contributors from your institution will be linked to your Institutions page so that journalists will have a quick background on who you are, what you do and how to contact you
Content addition Upon registration, you will be able to submit content. All users (including public and journalists) can add information in Events Calendar. There is no charge for this.
To add content, go to My Account and click on Submit Content. Information is added via an online form where you can type or "copy and paste" text from standard word processors into the online system. You can also print out the form as a PDF document and send the information to us by fax, email or post.
Users with Contributor accounts can submit much more information and can attach one file with each new content submission. You can choose to attach an image, document, sound or movie clip. The maximum size is 2 Mb. You can also give details of funding bodies, journals, meetings and their URL links where appropriate.
All information has been divided into 6 categories for ease of use. As a guide we have included some examples of main subjects for each category. This is on the front page and repeated below. However some research areas fall within 2 of the 6 categories. Therefore you will have an option of having your news in 2 different categories. However, we encourage you to minimise this and ResearchSEA editors may remove one of your selected categories if we feel it is inappropriate.
Each of the 6 categories above are further divided into News, Announcements and Events.
We are generally interested in: Summaries of results from research papers published in major peer reviewed journals Highlights from recent international conferences and meetings Announcements of grants, new projects, research centres, books and conferences Updates from on-going projects of international interest Researchers recognised as national or international experts in a particular field
ResearchSEA editors will review the content you have uploaded and if all the information is complete and within the scope of ResearchSEA's criteria, the information will be made live on the webpage.
A daily or weekly digest of news summaries will be sent out to registered users by email. This email will contain hyperlinks to the full articles.
Embargo You can also request for some content to be placed under embargo. Any items under embargo will be available only to journalists until its public release date. An embargo is a temporary ban on publication. It is a very useful system for journalists to research, understand and write up very complex stories before the information becomes known to the public.
Ask an Expert This service is meant to link experts and journalists. Experts must be recognised as a national or international expert in a particular field. Details of experts can only be submitted by users with contributor accounts. To submit an expert, go to My Account. Experts may be contacted by journalists when their expert comments or views are needed or for further information about their work.
