Publications and Presentations at Professional Conferences
Science education journals and professional conferences
Professional science and environmental education organizations provide opportunities for scientists to publish and make presentations about collaborative projects involving scientists and educators.
Presentations about education and outreach projects are also invited at science conferences such as the Alaska Marine Science Symposium
and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography
Brochures, Rack Cards, and Postcards
Brochures, rack cards, and postcards can be an effective outreach tool to drive users to your website or to raise awareness about your project. They can be distributed at conferences and other outlets. Work with a professional graphics designer to develop an attractive product that will draw attention to the most important information you wish to convey.
Newsletter and newspaper articles
Look for outlets for short magazine-style articles about your research. Universities often have periodic research publications aimed at a general audience and editors who can review your article to help you write it at the appropriate level of detail and technicality. Media specialists in your institution or agency can also help you with a press release and a distribution to newspapers and online news services. Don’t be afraid to talk to reporters if they contact you.
