Case Study Link

“Discover How Commissioning Editors Are Quickly Finding Their Ideal Stories, Case Studies & Contacts To Fit Their Next Piece, And How You Can Do The Same!”

“The key to finding the story or lead you want is to cast your net as far and wide as possible, and let as many people as possible know what information you need. Case Study Link casts that net for you.”
Natasha Courtenay-Smith, founder, Case Study Link

Being an editor is tough. There are always deadlines looming for news and article pieces to go to print, and there’s never enough time to get it done. One of the toughest things is finding real-life case studies, or leads, or even writers, for your pieces.

The trawls through cuttings, the press agency ring rounds, the calls to press offices, the endless postings on website forums…… finding the right lead, story or case study you need is not a straightforward or simple process.

The chances are, whilst you’re spending hours looking for your case study, there is a news agency, a local reporter or a freelance writer who has that story in their contacts book. If only you knew who…..

Here at Case Study Link, we’ve created a system to make finding case studies and story leads easy for you. Case Study Link allows you to tap into the databases of hundreds of freelance journalists and press agencies around the country with a single click of your mouse. You can even use Case Study Link if you’re looking for a journalist to write about a specific personal experience.

Within just a few moment of filling out our online form, your story request will be hitting the e-mail inboxes of over 400 journalists and agencies and you’ll be getting responses direct from them about your piece.

The service is completely free to you, however please note that you will be expected to pay a tip fee for any phone numbers, or a fee for any copy or story you buy. Please negotiate directly with the agency/freelance you are dealing with.

To submit your case study request, all you’ve got to do is click here and complete the orange form and our team will manually review your submission and mail out to our database right away.

Here’s what Daily Mail journalist Kathryn Knight says about Case Study Link: ‘Recently I had to find a number of very difficult case studies for a story on women who deceive or trick men into getting them pregnant. As you can imagine it was tough to find people on the record willing to talk about this, but all my best leads came from CSL and without it I wouldn’t have been able to do the story. It really proved invaluable.’

“Case Study Link is always my first port of call when I’m looking for a great case study – particularly on edition. I know that my request will go out within minutes to some of the best agencies and freelancers across the country. On a busy daily newspaper, it is literally a godsend.”

Anna Wharton

Commissioning editor on Femail
CSL is an invaluable resource in The Sun’s busy newsroom, where difficult stories are requested on a daily basis. Filling out a simple form online saves wasting valuable time ringing freelances and agencies individually. Crucially, it usually yields the case study we’re looking for as well.”

David Lowe

Feature writer on The Sun
“I regularly use Case Study Link and always receive a good response to my requests. It’s a brilliant service for putting magazines in touch with freelancers and vice versa.”

Heather Meyer

Commissioning editor on Chat and Pick Me Up magazines
“I can’t remember what we did before CSL came along. It’s transformed the way in which we source our case studies, and is an invaluable tool for the Fabulous Features Desk.”

Eimear O’Hagan

Acting Features Editor at Fabulous
"Case study link is an invaluable tool for finding case studies quickly. It’s useful for nailing those tricky case studies that can often take days to find – especially if you’re on a tight deadline. I’ve always had a wide response from my requests and been able to cherry pick the best stories for features.”

Hannah Barr

Freelance editor and journalist
"Case Study Link has proved invaluable for the show. We use it regularly to source case studies, often at the last minute. It’s easy-to-use, reliable and never fails to come up with results. It’s a brilliant website for journalists.”
