Info for the Press

Questions: Email us at: <press-info AT improbable.com>, or get in touch with one of the editors.

Access to the magazine content: We now make the complete contents of each new magazine issue available, free of charge, to authorized journalists. It's a steady supply of quirky stories that people can "get" easily. If you would like press access, please get in touch with us.

Covering the Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony (at Harvard University): Sanders Theatre, home of the annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony, holds only a limited number of people. Demand for tickets far exceeds the seating capacity. Only a limited number of press passes are available. If you would like to apply for one, please get in touch with us. (If you are not able to attend the ceremony in person, you can watch the live webcast.)

Basic info about winners:

Covering the Ig Informal Lectures (at MIT): The Ig Informal Lectures happen two days after the ceremony. Unlike the ceremony, seating is free, first come, first serve. No press passes are needed (nor do they exist) — if you would like to cover the lectures, simply arrive early enough to get a seat (or get in touch with us and we will reserve one for you.)

Get on the Improbable Research / Ig Nobel press list: We send out only a few press releases every year. The most important gives basic information about the date, etc., of the annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony. Following the ceremony, we send out a press release with detailed info about the new winners. If you would like to receive that info, please get in touch with us.
