News and Story Writing

We work with scientists to write news releases that increase the public’s knowledge of the discoveries made every day in the Eberly College of Science. Our writers are skilled communicators who have a knack for turning the esoteric technical complexity of science into clear language that people of all backgrounds can relate to; this can be in the form of news releases for the media, feature stories for our signature publication — the Science Journal — or general announcements like faculty awards or achievements or events on the web.

If you have news to share about a discovery, an award, or other recognition, send an email to sci-comm@psu.edu to let us know. If you have a manuscript, please share that as well.

Also consider writing a blog or letting us publish a question and answer piece about your discovery.

 

Marketing and Public Relations

We work with subject matter experts to promote Eberly Science’s expertise in research and education to a variety of audiences, including current and future students and their families, our college’s alumni, and peer institutions and researchers around the world. We carefully examine the information needs of these audiences and integrate targeted message and marketing channels to reach our fans and followers in the ways they find most compelling and meaningful; this can be through social media, web content, brochures, merchandise, posters and signage, and a number of other marketing and communications vehicles.

 

Creative Services

We produce visually attractive media that communicate our science, the college’s culture, and the impact of the research and education being done at the Eberly College of Science. These come in the form of graphic design, photography, videography, digital animation, and web content — all of which amplify the Penn State brand in harmony with the University’s visual and editorial standards.
