We can help you to bring the results of your research to the attention of the media. Ideally, you should do this before your article or book is actually published.
Article or book
If you want to share the results of your research with a wider audience and/or the media, please contact the university’s central Scientific Communication Adviser or your faculty's communication department. Ideally, you should do this before your article or book is actually published (for example, once you have been informed that your research has been accepted for publication). Send the abstract or the article (under embargo) to the Scientific Communication Adviser or to your faculty's communication department, if necessary accompanied by a brief explanation of why the research may be relevant to a wider audience. In consultation with you, the communication advisers will determine whether and how to publicise your article or book.
Make sure you submit a short public summary of your dissertation (via an online form) at least four weeks before the date of the PhD ceremony. We will then include the summary in the announcement about your PhD ceremony on the university website. We will also decide whether we want to publicise the results of your PhD research among a wider audience, for example by posting a press release on the website and/or by alerting journalists. This depends on the newsworthiness of the research. Of course, we always do this in consultation with you.
