About one email a month. We'll regularly send out short questionnaires looking for background information, quotes, and sources for stories tied to specific issues or events. If you don't have personal experience or insights to share, please pass on the request to friends or colleagues who do.
An occasional follow-up call or email. Our editors and reporters may be in touch to get more information on a lead you provide.
