How to Tell a Research Story

The job of research has clearly evolved. Historically, the
role of research was to create data where there was none, but we no longer live
in a world where data are rare. We have more data than we know what to do with.
And the job of the researcher increasingly will be to make those data usable.
It’s going to take an infusion of new skill sets.

Stories help us navigate life’s complex social problems’just as flight
simulators prepare pilots for difficult situations. Storytelling has
evolved, like other behaviors, to ensure our survival. Stories can also change
the world for the better. Most successful stories are moral’they teach us how
to live, whether explicitly or implicitly, and bind us together around common
values. We know we are master shapers of story.

Several attendees, speakers and sponsors at TMRE 2014 shared
with us some best practices on how to tell a research story.
