Submitting your research
results to the website
A web-based form has been created for researchers to
easily submit their research results/ activities to the
synthesis webite. This form can be accessed through
the VECTORS project website
Each form submitted will be created into an individual
website page. Within each page the results are
displayed in a way that highlights and focuses on the
key findings of the research so, before you start
entering your results, please consider
• How your research should be presented; as one set
of results on a single website page, or brokendown into two or more pages.
• How many key findings can be presented? These
should be the key messages that we want to
communicate backed up by supporting evidence.
The form
has been
designed to
collect all of
the
information
required to
create a core
page of the
website so it
is imperative
that all
fields are
completed.
Submitting your research results to
the website
VECTORS Website Synthesis meeting, London , 21st August 2014
Key points for submitting your research
• Please include all necessary references in the text and then provide the
appropriate citation to the paper in the box provided. When the data is
transferred to the website the references will be shown as a number to
minimise the amount of characters required.
• Avoid the use of acronyms and overly scientific terms that the reader is not
likely to understand. Use terms / definitions that are familiar to the audience
(i.e. used in directives / policies) so that they can instantly associate with the
meaning.
• Focus on the message(s) that we want to communicate to our audience, such as
the policy and management relevance of our results but make sure to be clear
how it informs / is relevant?
• Keep text concise and succinct, don’t include any detail that is not specific to
the message
