APO provides an excellent opportunity to reach our policy community. Our website generates over 3 million page views each year and our newsletters reach over 15,000 subscribers each week.
Our advertising is specifically targeted towards our community’s interests and needs. We provide an excellent opportunity to reach a highly targeted and unique public policy and research audience. We offer three advertising options:
- Banner ads can focus on any policy or research-related theme. They appear at the top of our newsletters and as one of the first things a reader sees, they provide the greatest impact.
- Classifieds focus on relevant events, courses, and jobs in the public policy and research sphere. They appear in the classified section of our newsletters and on the website and offer excellent value.
- Calls & notices for research participants, inquiry submissions, conference and journal papers, or Expressions of Interest are free. They appear in the classified section of our newsletters and on the website. Free events (e.g. lectures, webinars) and courses (e.g. workshops) require a purchased classified and should not be listed as calls & notices.
