Media Relations

Media relations efforts at APS focus on increasing coverage of physics research in the popular media, and expansion of the awareness of physics and interest in physics-related news and issues in the general public. Vehicles for disseminating physics news and information include email alerts, embargoed press releases distributed through high-quality press release distribution services, direct contact with an extensive list of science journalists, and promotion of physics and APS to the general public.

APS Media Relations can assist members and units in the following ways:

  • Crafting, editing, and distributing press releases and announcements for maximum impact
  • Identifying the best outlets for your news, from general interest newspapers to science publications to trade periodicals
  • Managing press rooms and press conferences at APS unit meetings
  • Targeting audiences most likely to be receptive to your news from databases of thousands of journalists located across the US and around the world
  • Addressing any other public relations questions or concerns
