What's EurekAlert!?

EurekAlert! is an editorially independent nonprofit news-release distribution platform operated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Wired calls EurekAlert! "the news hub that shapes the science you read."

Established in 1996, EurekAlert! is a free resource for working journalists who cover any scientific topic, offering embargoed press packages from world’s top scientific publishers, such as the Science Family of Journals, PNAS, JAMA, Lancet, the BMJ, ASBMB, American Chemical Society, and Cell Press.

EurekAlert! is supported by subscription fees from organizations that submit news releases to EurekAlert!. Currently, four out of five of the world’s top-ranked universities entrust EurekAlert! with their science-related news releases. An average of 150 news releases are published daily on EurekAlert!, and many are available first under embargo to journalist-members to facilitate accurate and timely independent reporting. All news releases must meet our content eligibility guidelines to be accepted and are made available to the public after embargo (if applicable).
