Getting Your Message Acrossadmin | February 27, 2010
The Trade Fair at Aston showed just how many high quality products will come out of your research and activities. The next stage is to get it all out in the open and share your packaged outputs with the world, in an effective and innovative way. JISC Comms and the SSBR team are here to offer guidance and any help you may need to do this.
Example dissemination ideas we can help with:
- briefing and training materials
- exemplar policy guidance
- implementation strategies
- third year mentor handbook
- proof of concept to be shared with the wider community
- series of ‘how to’ guide materials
- position paper setting out a series of recommendations and suggestions
- general publicity and press releases
We can advise on the publishing processes involved, including print or web advice and creative commons issues. You can of course use your own university media departments and resources.
There are certain guidelines regarding the style and look and most JISC branding issues can be found here www.jisc.ac.uk/brand
Links which relate directly to your projects can be found here
If you do have any queries, Jane Charlton at JISC Comms firstname.lastname@example.org or JISC Design and Production Manager, Greg Clemett email@example.com will also be able to advise on project and programme level branding and designs.
We are happy to lend a hand with press releases. If you want to promote your project to journalists or the press you should go through either your institutional press and PR office for local and regional news items, or for specialist and national press through the JISC press and PR office firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information about writing for JISC can be found in the Brand Manual.
For any advice on creative commons issues, see here http://www.jisc.ac.uk/publications/briefingpapers/2009/bpcreativecommons.aspx and here http://creativecommons.org/
