Creating Content and Need Expert Sources?

ProfNet, a service of PR Newswire, has been connecting journalists with expert sources since 1992. With access more than 14,000 public relations professionals -- and the hundreds of thousands of experts they represent -- ProfNet makes expert sourcing quick and easy.

ProfNet queries are sent to subscribers all throughout the day, meaning your query doesn't sit in a queue for hours -- or days -- on end. Filtering options that allow you to target queries by institution type and geographic location mean more relevant responses and less time wasted.

You can also choose to search ProfNet Connect, our free online community of nearly 50,000 experts, media and professional communicators; or receive Expert Alerts, our email newsletter that features experts available for interviews on the topics you cover.

Whatever option you choose, ProfNet is sure to help you find the sources you need.

Services for Journalists

ProfNet offers several services to help you connect with the sources you need -- at no charge. As with all of PR Newswire's services for journalists, ProfNet is free for media professionals.


ProfNet Queries

Submit a ProfNet query detailing the expertise you seek, your deadline and your preferred method for responses. You can also filter your request by institution type and geographic location. Then sit back as experts come to you, and follow up only with those that fit your needs.

ProfNet Expert Alerts

Sign up to receive an email newsletter with leads to experts who are available to talk about timely topics in your coverage area, as well as story ideas and links to relevant articles from ProfNet Connect. Expert Alerts are available in three editions: Business, Finance & Technology; Government, Law, Education & Science; Health, Living & Entertainment.

ProfNet Connect

ProfNet Connect is our free online community of nearly 50,000 experts, media and professional communicators. Profiles are searchable by keyword and geographic location, and include photos, video, links to white papers and more. You can also create your own profile on the site to showcase your own expertise; view leads on experts and story ideas; participate in forums; and more.

ProfNet on Twitter

If you're in a real time crunch, you can also request to have your query posted immediately on ProfNet's Twitter stream (@profnet). We only post same-day deadline queries -- and only with your approval. When you submit a query, just indicate that you would like us to post the query on Twitter. Because the post includes your email address, you don't have to have a Twitter account to receive responses.

ProfNet en Español

Via ProfNet en Español, you can find Spanish-speaking sources from across the U.S. When submitting your query, just specify that you are interested in connecting with a Spanish-speaking expert, and we will distribute the query to our ProfNet en Español subscribers. Send a query now.
