What is ClinPage? How big is your audience?
What sorts of topics do you write about? Can you write about me or my company?
So how does your site work? How can I find what I’m looking for?
Stories first appear at the top of the widest column, on the right of the home page. Then articles slowly move down the page as new stories are published. Stories that reach the bottom of the right column then migrate to the top of the middle column. Visitors may also use our search box or the department heading pages (such as http://www.clinpage.com/edc) to find stories of interest. Finally, our search box in the far left column of the site will examine our archives. Putting a company’s internet domain name (yourcompany) may find better results than searching for “Your Company,” as our industry has many similar corporate names using words or syllables like Medical, Clinical, Pharm, Phase, etc., etc.
Does ClinPage publish an editorial calendar?
For the 2010, for the first time, we will have an editorial calendar available for advertisers and public relations professionals.
Can I write for ClinPage?
Can I link to your site?
Yes. The URL in the browser window of a full ClinPage article will not change. It’s a permalink—a short URL, readable by humans, that can be bookmarked and linked to. This link is unique, giving each ClinPage story its own location on our site. Not all websites in the industry have permalinks, which facilitate a topic or company on our site being located by search engines.
Can I buy a reprint of a ClinPage article?
Is there anything you generally don’t cover?
Yes. There are two types of stories that we regret we are unable to address:
1. ClinPage is sorry to say that it does not cover the benefits or competitive positions of specific drugs or medical devices. The scientific and marketing aspects of specific drugs, devices or biotech products are also outside our expertise. Similarly, the results, outcomes and findings of specific clinical trials extend outside ClinPage’s scope. If you have such an announcement, please send it to a suitable peer-reviewed journal or trade publication.
2. ClinPage also apologizes that it does not have the resources necessary to monitor the routine starting and stopping of individual clinical trials.
Can I read your stories in RSS format?
Yes, point your RSS reader or web browser to ClinPage RSS. For future reference, that address is feed://www.clinpage.com/site/rss/.
Can I add your feed to My Google? Yahoo?
May I spam you? May I add you to my mailing list?
We welcome email that relates to any clinical trial topic. We are not interested in other general news. To control the tide of such messages, we blacklist any domains that send excessive or inappropriate email. These domains are blocked at the server; such messages do not appear in our mailbox for spam. At this time, blocked domains include newsandexperts.com, prnewswire.com and elandiagroup.com.
On your bulletins page, the headline doesn’t correspond to the first story. Why is that?
The large number of active companies in the clinical trial industry presents an editorial challenge. Here’s our approach. The headline on our daily news bulletins page always corresponds—in typical journalistic fashion—to the most significant item in that day’s batch. The most important bulletin is positioned last, at the bottom of the batch. The ClinPage home page also presents a glimpse of the first item in the list. This allows organizations not mentioned in the day’s headline to get some attention.
