Sounds reasonable (having done product reviews for pubs before, having seen what challenges there are to capturing vendor data.) Vendors (read: P-R people) are famous at not having sufficient clue to identify how to contact publications. Please make sure this mechanism is clearly documented so that the poor little vendors can figure out how to get on your list.

This is the document so I am happy to elaborate here if need be.
