Communicating your research

Communicating well is key to getting research funded, done and taken up by others.

Our R&D communications team provide support, templates and opportunities for communicating your work with a wide range of audiences, while the university-hospital partnership supports effective publication of your research findings.

Publication guidelines

Please read our Joint Partnership Policy and Guidance on Pre-clinical and Clinical Research Publications before submitting a research paper to a journal.  You can download this from our Documents, procedures and templates.

Remember, if appropriate, to include the NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre and NIHR Southampton Clinical Research Facility in your affiliations.

Communication templates

You can also download correctly branded and formatted templates, including letterheads, posters and presentation slides from our Documents, procedures and templates.

R&D communications team

We can help you communicate with staff, patients and the public onsite, online and through others’ broadcast, print or event platforms.

We also push news directly and via the university and hospital, working closely with their press teams to develop press and media coverage.

For study recruitment, we can provide a range of support including materials, advertisement advice and targeted engagement.
