In the Admin area when you edit a post, I'd like to add a custom item to the Publish panel in the top right corner.

Is it possible to access this through the Wordpress API? If so, what functions do I need to look at? Any examples would be much appreciated.

You can hook into 'post_submitbox_misc_actions' or 'post_submitbox_start':

add_action( 'post_submitbox_misc_actions', 'wpse_45720_submitdiv_extra' );
add_action( 'post_submitbox_start', 'wpse_45720_submitdiv_extra' );

function wpse_45720_submitdiv_extra()
    print '<pre>' . current_filter() . '</pre>';
