How the service works

The Research Community - ensuring media coverage of research

Research bodies subscribed to AlphaGalileo use the service to promote their research worldwide and hence to increase the media coverage significantly. By posting news onto our website, they can reach immediately more than 7,000 media professionals.

Press releases, event or publication announcements, library items and broadcast media posted on AlphaGalileo are published online and disseminated via email alerts and/or RSS feeds to the journalists from all over the world. In addition, we also distribute our news in Twitter and Facebook.
