      Thank you to Desmond and Cheryl for the friendly welcome. I am perusing
      the archives and there's a lot of interesting stuff - I don't want to
      ask any painfully n00b questions that are either totally 'beneath'
      people (lol) or have been asked a million times. I am wondering a
      couple of things; if I have a very basic question about press releases,
      is this a good place to ask, or can someone recommend a more basic
      group? And second, my work is in science, cosmetics/skin care and
      nutrition - are there any other publicity professionals in those
      industries on board here?

      If it isn't inappropriate, the question that is on my mind at present
      is related to writing press releases: as I said, my field is the
      science end of skin and personal care, and I want to quote and use some
      content from an article I found online. Is it normal etiquette to ask
      permission before doing so? Or is it considered 'quotable'? I would be
      giving credit of course, and using very few if any direct quotes - I
      just want to mention this author's work, as it is groundbreaking and
      will add interest to my release.

      Thanks in advance!

      Natalie

        Belated welcome from Los Angeles. My feeling on this is that it
        depends. If the article was not published in a media outlet, if the
        findings are widely known and understood, and the author would not
        mind being associated with a product promotion, I think it's okay,
        with advanced notice that you will be doing so to give the author time
        to refuse.

        But the best course would be to contact the author directly and ask if
        he/she would provide some brief, original supporting comments - give a
        sample if you can.

        As for "stupid PR questions," ask away. There's a mix of experience
        levels here from students to seasoned pros, and none of us are so good
        we have all the answers all the time, even if we think we do.

        Regards,
        Kezia

          Hey guys,

          For an upcoming article in Glamour, I've been asked to locate women
          age 20-40 who have used the drug isotretinoin (commonly sold as
          Accutane, or Amnesteem, Claravis, Sotret and Roaccutane) or are
          considering taking it.
          In particular, I'm looking for women who:
          1. are considering taking it, but are worried about the side effects
          2. took the drug in the recent past (within 2 years) and experienced
          psychological side effects such as depression
          3. took the drug in the past and feel like they're still suffering
          physical or psychological side effects
          4. have ordered or are considering ordering the drug online

          or, if you have any other interesting stories related to taking the
          drug, please tell.

          AND, if you know any pharmacists or dermatologists who might be able
          to get me in touch with women who fit this criteria, can you give me
          their contact info?

          I'll need the usual info - your name, age, town, email address and
          phone number, plus a paragraph describing your situation with the
          drug, and I need your response by Friday at 11am central time.
          Thanks,
          Cheryl

                    to a product promo, it's just a general science-related release on a

                    still want to refer to the article, because it's an important
                    scientific paper in its (admittedly narrow) field. I really

                      I just wanted to offer a belated 'THANK YOU' to everyone who offered
                      suggestions and support regarding my question about writing my most
                      recent press release. It was posted on April 16, and we're getting a
                      lot of play from it. I didn't end up using any quotes from the source I
                      was considering, but I did use some info from the paper. It's not up on
                      our own website yet, but here's a link to the release if anyone wants
                      to read it:
