Rapidly source interviewees, experts, images, case studies and review products.
How it works
The Journalist Enquiry Service helps journalists gather information for independent editorial from PRs in all sectors, free of charge.
It puts you in touch with experts, case studies and PR contacts, saves you hours of research, and helps you meet your deadlines.
One simple request, thousands of new sources
You fill in the form on responsesource.com/send and we send your enquiry via email to potential sources in the sectors you choose. It’s also posted on our website, which is password protected, for subscribers to view, and a short alert will be tweeted if you choose this option. If our subscribers can help with your request, they will reply directly to you – you choose how, and give them a deadline.
Any information or help you need to prepare independent editorial: experts and case studies to interview, facts, comment, background, statistics, products to review, competition prizes, photos, locations for photoshoots or filming interviews.
Our thousands of subscribers include PR professionals at the UK’s top PR agencies, freelance PR professionals, in-house PR and marketing departments for businesses, charities, public sector bodies, and entrepreneurs doing their own PR. They’ll subscribe to the categories that are most relevant so your enquiry will be distributed to the people who are most likely to be able to provide the answers and resources you need.
You can give your phone number, Twitter or email address. Most journalists seem to find email works best for sifting through replies and storing useful contacts. To protect your email address each enquiry is assigned a unique expiring email address which redirects straight to your personal address. It will look strange but it doesn’t interfere with your replies, and means your email address is not visible in the emails sent to recipients or on our website. This helps to ensure prompt replies, enforces your deadline, and stops you from being added to mailing lists without your permission.
You cannot use ResponseSource to request sponsorship or offer advertising (see our acceptable use policy). Basically, if you're not seeking information for the production of independent editorial, then ResponseSource is not for you.
Using the journalist enquiry form we're able to get in front of PR companies without hours spent on the phone. We can quickly make contact with experts and professionals who can supply relevant and timely content that helps us to produce a local publication described as a must-read by our readers.
