What we need to publicize your work:

Copies of your pending research papers as early as possible (more than a month before
publication is not too soon)

Notification of significant grant awards

A small amount of your time to discuss the research, the results and the implications
In turn, we will:

Discuss appropriate placement and develop a draft article/release

Give the draft to you for review prior to release

Distribute the article to all or some of the venues discussed previously

Work with you to coordinate any press interviews
