Research Study Marketing

University of Pittsburgh researchers who are in need of participants for local research studies may want to develop marketing materials to help with their recruiting.

Please know the University of Pittsburgh institutional social media accounts do not advertise research studies.

For updates to designs created previously by the Office of University Communications and Marketing, please submit a Marketing Project Request form.

Research Study Marketing Guidelines

The Office of University Communications and Marketing has developed guidelines for research study marketing.

Research Study Postcard Mailings

There are two important production steps involved with mailing your research study postcards to targeted audiences that require generation of a mailing list.

Design and Print Suppliers

In addition, University-qualified design and print suppliers are available to assist at competitive rates. Please keep in mind that these suppliers will not develop one-off research study logos and will provide marketing materials that reflect the University's branding and identity. They will partner with you to produce on-brand flyers, posters, trifold brochures, postcards, tabling cards, social media graphics and other collateral that may be needed to promote your research.
