Promoting your research: A pre-publication guide

Scientists in a lab chatting

As a funder of medical research, it is essential that we can disseminate, communicate and promote all the work that we fund. We believe it is an important responsibility to tell the story of arthritis and make it visible on behalf of those affected by arthritis. Consequently, it is vital that all researchers receiving our funding keep us notified of publications well ahead of print and provide us with pre-publication manuscripts and any other appropriate materials. Informing us about your work as soon as possible can help us to gain valuable insight into the research we fund and to shout about our successes. 
We've produced a pre-publication guide (PDF 1.63 MB) which outlines what we may do with your publications once we receive them and also what we may need from you.

The guide contains information on our internal processes around promoting research, including:

  • What to do when your publications are accepted
  • how we will sensitively handle your publications, and respect embargoes
  • the step by step process from accepted publication to news story
  • how we may handle queries from people with arthritis or journalists

For more information, please see our pre-publication guide (PDF 1.63 MB) or contact the research liaison team at
