In addition to traditional methods of disseminating project findings (e.g., journal articles, conference presentations) researchers can also use following:
Some findings may find a mainstream audience through a press release.
It is highly recommended that you contact a media relations or public relations specialist at your institution when a new publication has been accepted. A specialist can help develop a media strategy for the findings. Lead time is important in developing a strategy, thus submitting materials as early as possible is important. Cultivating additional outlets will increase the visibility of your findings to a mainstream audience.
Facebook and Twitter can be used by individual investigators or organizations to disseminate findings. Follow researchers and organizations who do similar work. Follow CDUHR on Facebook (facebook.com/cduhr) and Twitter (twitter.com/cduhr_nyc).
Advisory Boards / Coalitions
Many projects have scientific advisory or community boards. These boards can widen one's network and provide information on additional dissemination outlets.
