UW Faculty Members Encouraged to Submit Papers for Release in Advance

January 17, 2023

University of Wyoming faculty members who have upcoming research papers that will be published in the following journals -- Nature, Science or the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences -- are encouraged to let UW Institutional Communications know well in advance. 

UW Institutional Communications is primarily interested in writing media releases on research published in these journals, but will publicize papers appearing in other peer-reviewed scientific journals as well. 

For scheduling purposes, UW faculty members are encouraged to submit their papers as soon as they know they will be published. This is typically three to four weeks in advance. It is easier to work on a news release and obtain photos weeks in advance than learning only a few days before the paper is to be published. And UW Institutional Communications honors all publishing embargoes, so there is no need to worry about sending papers well in advance of the publication dates, says Ron Podell, a UW Institutional Communications specialist. 

To submit a paper, call Podell at 766-2353 or email
