Vox Global Outreach Programme
VOX GLOBAL OUTREACH MEMBERSHIP
Vox’s and CEPR’s missions are twofold: promote research excellence and get the policy-relevant results into the hands of public- and private-sector decision makers. CEPR produces a steady flow of such material, but we have decided to launch a new initiative to boost our network externalities in outreach.
CEPR is inviting a highly selective list of institutions to become Vox Global Outreach Members. These institutions – all of whom share our guiding principle “Research Excellence with Policy Relevance” – will be able to amplify the impact and outreach of their research by leveraging the dissemination networks of VoxEU.org.
Standard Outreach Members have the right to:
- Post Vox columns on VoxEU.org (minimum of six per year).
Procedures for selecting the research for such Vox columns will be settled by agreement between the Member’s research leader and the VoxEU Editor-in-Chief.
- Use Vox-based dissemination channels for at least one report/book per year.
This will involve a Vox column announcing the report and dissemination via the Vox and CEPR online media channels (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) and CEPR’s mailing list.
Premium Membership can be thought of as a bespoke relationship tailored to the Member institution’s outreach needs and capacities; they enjoy a more privileged/strategic partnership with CEPR and Vox.
In addition to a higher minimum number of Vox columns (ten per year) and Report disseminations (three per year), CEPR works with its Premium Members to find creative ways of increasing their impact and influence.
- Publish reports with CEPR Press
CEPR has developed a reputation for publishing excellence – in terms of both substance and high-quality copyediting and formatting – all done in a matter of weeks rather than months Naturally, the manuscripts are subjected to a review process involving CEPR’s scientific leadership.
- Suggest topics for Vox eBooks
Vox introduced eBooks in October 2008, just days after the Lehman Brothers failure. The innovation proved to be a useful and highly popular outreach vehicle, with many eBooks being accessed online over 50,000 times, and the most popular being downloaded hundreds of thousands of times). The concept has now been copied by research institutions and think-tanks across the world. The key is to identify the right topic, the right authors and the right timing. As Premium Members are likely to be aware of such opportunities in a timely fashion, CEPR and Vox will work with them to pinpoint such topics, sets of authors, and editors.
- Opportunity for your researchers to contribute to Vox eBooks
The contents of eBooks are fully under the control of the editors appointed by CEPR, but full consideration will be given to researchers associated with Premium Members.
- Organise a minimum of two publication launch meetings/discussion meetings per year, coordinated by CEPR's experienced Events Team
CEPR will handle all administrative matters such as finding a venue, coordinating invitations, developing the programme, handling expense claims; direct costs are born by the member. We also help you identify and invite the right audience. After more than 30 years of bringing policy-relevant research to decision makers on the full range of economic issues, CEPR is well known in the public and private sectors. We can help you attract a high-calibre audience involving key decision-makers and opinion-leaders across business and government.
Vox has a very large audience with almost 2.7 million visits in the past twelve months, and the trend is generally rising. The audience is worldwide, although a large share of Vox readers are based in the US and the UK. CEPR’s network of over 1000 leading economists and our large list of research consumers complements the online presence of VoxEU.org.
