Notifications of Research Publications and Publicity
If you are a VAPHS Investigator, remember that you are required to notify the VAPHS Research Office upon receipt of initial notice of all accepted publications, and initial notice of anticipated/scheduled presentations, media/interviews, or other professional activities related to VA research to ensure that the contributions of the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) are appropriately acknowledged and publically disclosed.
VAPHS Investigators should use the VAPHS Research Publicity Form to notify the Research Office and fulfill this requirement.
A guidance has been created with information and instructions related to sending notifications, please review this guidance document and submit all notifications of research publicity forms to VHAPTHResearchPublicity@va.gov.
