Press releases and email notices increase local and global visibility of a small medical journal
Abstract:To increase its visibility among the general public and the international scientific community, the Croatian Medical Journal (CMJ), a small journal from the so-called scientific periphery, introduced a media strategy of sending press releases to journalists and email notices to the newsdesk of a high-profile international scientific journal. Subsequent news coverage and the positive response of journalists show that press releases and targeted email notices increased international visibility of articles published in a small scientific journal, and improved communication with journalists as mediators of scientific information to the general public.
