Case Story:

Science Writers Highlight Research Breakthroughs for National Lab

Challenge

To highlight the outstanding research coming out of Argonne National Lab’s Advanced Photon Source through engaging, scientific journalistic articles.

Solution

Utilize best-practices in science writing to develop articles highlighting the findings and significance of research emerging from Argonne National Lab.

Results

 To date, we have published 18 science journalism articles in collaboration with Argonne scientists. 

Case Study: Science Writing Support for Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Lab, one of the most prestigious research institutions in the United States recently contracted Untold Content to provide ongoing scientific journalism support for their biannual Science Highlights Book. These highlights are written based on the top scientific articles selected by the beamline scientists from the Advanced Photon Source (APS). We are proud to write and work with the most impactful scientists from around the world to highlight the discoveries and innovations that will shape tomorrow. These articles are intended for the APS research community and for a wider, non-scientific audience.

PROJECT GOALS

  • Translate peer-reviewed research in science journalism articles 
  • Produce 700 word scientific journalism articles
  • Provide final documents within 2 weeks of request

OUR SOLUTION

On an ongoing biannual basis, we review research articles, references and supporting information provided by the APS. Based on the experimental approach and impact of the scientific findings, our team of scientific writers composes 700 word research highlight articles. These articles are refined through conversations with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to create the final highlight articles that are submitted to APS.
