Science is often difficult to explain. It’s even more difficult when English isn’t your first language.
Every day on news sites and social feeds, people around the world receive a continual stream of interesting scientific news written in accessible language.
Also, with so much new research emerging from all corners of the world at a constant rate, where do reporters find their stories? The answer is press releases (often also called news releases). Science reporters and other interested parties scan press releases in search of interesting and exciting content. From there, they report on it newspapers, online news outlets, social media services, and other media.
When a new planet is identified, a new drug discovered, or an ancient civilization unearthed, scientific journalists learn about it through a press release, and subsequently report on it in the media. Press release services receive press releases and curate them for journalists. The best of these services also publish the press releases online and offer other language and channels of distribution. With English as the global language of scientific communication, researchers who want the world to know of their work must write about it in clear and effective English. We design press releases ready for easy submission to press release services, including the popular EurekAlert! service.
Edanz customers typically use English as a foreign language. We help them raise their language to level equal to that of native speakers in an appropriate tone. The Edanz Press Release service takes the original scientific article and assigns a specialized editor-writer to review it and craft an attractive press release in stylish, scientifically accurate, journalistic English that will appeal to media and the general public.
We use the EurekAlert! guidelines as a standard, though we can customize information to satisfy your requirements for other purposes. We craft a press release that is ready for submission.
Standard elements typically include:
Main text of approximately 400 words
*Please note that we do not do image creation.
1) Send us your publication (pending publications are also accepted) and any supporting materials, in pdf or doc format. We will review the topic and contents and assign the press release creation job to one of our experienced scientific editor-writers. (time of completion: 4 business days)
2) We return your press release with all the necessary sections for submission on EurekAlert! or the distribution service of your choice. If you have any requests for revision, return it to use for a 2nd round, just as you would with our editing service.
