Hi Kim - Point them to ChemIDPlus Advanced - All the databases in one, from NIH and Peer reviewed.

About a year ago, there was a discussion about how we could/should interact with our university Schools of Journalism to improve safety/chemical incident reporting. I made some contacts and now that we have a MS program in Communicating Science to the Public (, they've contacted me to work with them on using the Texas Tech mis-reporting as a case study!

So - I'm looking for your collective wisdom: what would you like a Journalism student working on science reporting to know? What's your favorite place to check facts (I already shared with them Tox-Net) on reporting chem hazards?

I'm really excited about this opportunity to share our safety knowledge with these students so that maybe they can pass on correct/useful information instead of just the scare tactics to get the big headline.

Thanks in advance for your ideas!
