Sharing Research Results with the Public and Media

Press Releases and Other Media Events

Results which appear to be of special interest to the general public may be made the subject of a WMKO press release to the news media. In the event your research organization wishes to join with WMKO in a simultaneous news release, arrangements may be made through the Communications and Public Programs Office as indicated above. Authors who publish data based wholly or in part on data obtained at the W. M. Keck Observatory are asked to provide acknowledgment in press releases and to news media reporters during interviews, including radio, television, Internet, telephone and video broadcasts. Please notify the Communications and Public Programs Office of these events.

Citations of Your Papers

The Keck Observatory Bibliography lists refereed papers and PhD dissertations referencing data collected at the W. M. Keck Observatory. Please send citations for the WMKO Bibliography to Librarian Peggi Kamisato, pkamisato@keck.hawaii.edu.
