Peer-reviewed professional lists – Top Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists, and Chiropractors are unquestionably some of the most successful sections published in city and regional magazines. Magazines that have published these lists have seen dramatically increased newsstand sales, web activity, and advertising sales! Furthermore, these features connect with a large number of professionals and their staff, families, and customers. The multiplier effect is quite significant.
Until now, publishers and editors were faced with conducting this highly laborious and costly peer-review research on their own, or engaging a third-party provider who might not have the best interests of the magazine in mind. The need for solid research methodology, timely service, and a partner who understands the unique needs of the media has never been greater.
Professional Research Services (PRS) conducts these peer-review surveys of professionals within a specific geographical area. PRS then licenses this data to city and regional magazines and other media around the country. PRS' listings have been featured in magazines nationwide including Honolulu Magazine, Seattle Met, Rhode Island Monthly, Sacramento Magazine, 201 magazine, New Orleans, and Hour Detroit.
