Press Credential Policies

These guidelines outline the qualifications for obtaining complimentary meeting registration and/or access to the virtual meeting and its newsroom. 

Please email the EB media team with any questions. 
  1. Journalists with reporter access to EurekAlert! access and those with formal credentials, such as a press club badge, qualify for a press pass.
  2. Journalists who do not have press credentials or EurekAlert! access must submit two recent samples of their bylined work and provide a letter of assignment, or broadcast outlet for which they are covering the EB meeting. Qualifying online outlets must provide content that is original and independent of advertising and sponsorship; personal websites do not qualify.   
  3. Members of the EB host societies can apply to become an official meeting blogger. Official meeting bloggers receive complimentary press passes and access to the EB virtual newsroom.
  4. Representatives of journals that do not contain news sections are not eligible for press passes, nor are editors of journals or other publications who do not edit their outlet’s news section. This rule will be strictly enforced.
  5. Representatives of book, magazine and journal publishers, as well as advertising and marketing representatives, are ineligible for press passes.
  6. Public information officers and individuals representing public relations firms must register for the meeting as non-members and pay the non-member conference rate.

The conference organizers reserve the right to limit the number of passes provided to any organization and the right to deny pass requests.
