If you want to access some interesting and accessible research from universities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom then Futurity.org is a good place to start looking.

The clear and crisp appearance of this site is very appealing. Five stories scroll through on the upper part of the page, with four drop down categories (Earth & Environment, Health & Medicine, Science & Technology, Society & Culture) providing access to more story. Down the right hand side are two drop down menus, the first listing all the universities’ research stories are taken from, and the second allows you to draw out research stories from any particular month/year combination.
