Experts for Media

A resource for journalists to find stories and sources.

At Asia Research News, we have a strong network of researchers at institutes throughout Asia and beyond. Every so often, we pick a topic that we believe will interest journalists and invite research institutions to nominate their experts in that topic. Journalists are welcome to contact researchers directly, or reach out to us if you need help finding a source. More researchers are available on our Researchers page

Asia Research News was a valuable resource for my story on gender equality in China's science industry - part of the South China Morning Post's International Women's Day 2022 series. Thank you ARN, and your extensive network of researchers, with special thanks to those who kindly helped with my exploration of why there are so few women in China’s top science institutes, and recent measures meant to bridge the gender gap.
