Distributing Media Releases

While we do not distribute media releases on behalf of institutions, we do encourage dialogue between scientists and the media and are constantly scanning for emerging issues and new research which may be of interest to the general public. Feel free to contact us if you wish to discuss this further.

In the meantime, here are some useful links to organisations that may be able to distribute your media release for you.
