Media and external communications
The Media team works with Macquarie staff to facilitate interactions with the media. This can involve papers (eg. those accepted by research or academic journals), opinion pieces, media interview opportunities, and other news and announcements for external audiences.
For academics seeking media coverage of papers, we encourage you to complete this form when the paper has been accepted to be published so that we can work with the information under embargo to coincide with the release of the paper.
