When and how to let us know about your published research

IMPORTANT: Please let us know when you have research that will be published as soon as possible by emailing helen.foley@ncl.ac.uk

We will treat all information in the strictest confidence, but sharing can help us prepare something to promote this work as soon as any press embargoes are lifted.

You must also send a copy of the paper/article/output to BRC.Publications@newcastle.ac.uk, preferably at least 14 days before it is due to be published so it can be recorded and sent to NIHR for review.
