All sectors / Research
Journalists are most commonly dubbed "researchers" in the world of broadcasting. In print media, it tends to be - though is not always - the case that whoever does the research writes it up.
We plan to present a compendium of rates for research, as a "cross-section" across all publishing and broadcasting sectors. In the meantime, you need to follow the links below to rates for each of the sectors in which journalists do research.
For advice, tips on negotiating, etc, follow the links to the relevant sector.
