We invite journalists to join our media lists to receive our embargoed press releases. If you would like to be added to our media lists please contact us. We can also help you navigate content and put you in touch with experts in open access publishing, research integrity and peer review.

Press Officers

We support press officers and public information officers by providing embargo details and help to arrange a publication date for articles by researchers from your institute. We are also happy to receive pitches for content to publish on our blog network. All our content is open access and free to reuse providing it is attributed correctly under the conditions of our licence agreement.
