RAP and RAPid Article Submissions

How can I submit content for consideration?

For general news or events, not related to funding opportunities, please use the form below for consideration.  Routine updates will be placed in The RAP (now published three times a year) or via a RAPid announcement.

Will you include our suggested content?

Not every news item is shared, but we will review it based on our audience's interests and information needs.

What is your deadline?

We have a rolling deadline and we use The RAPid (Research Administration Post - Immediate Dispatch) to publish "just-in-time" information. While we do accommodate urgent requests, we do prefer 2-4 weeks notice for preparation.

Content and character limits? 

Please see our form below or use the Medical School's Newsletter Article Submission Form. If you have content that exceeds 250 words, please consider providing an abstract with a URL link to the complete version on your own website.
