The Research Cooperative is an independent social network and NPO.
After joining, members must create their own public profile in order to be visible, and thus benefit as network members.
Our service forumsand related focus groups encourage mutal support and collaboration for academic, scientific, technical, and educational communication (all topics, all languages, all countries). We welcome researchers, research students, science writers, editors, proofreaders, illustrators, indexers, translators, publishers, and others.
See our introduction or welcome in other languages:
Authors can seek volunteer, discount, or full-priced professional help.
Editors, proofreaders, translators, illustrators, indexers, and publishers can offer volunteer, discount, or full-priced professional services.
To join as a regular member, use the "create account" tab in the main menu. Joining is free, and will remain free. After your request is approved, you can add further optional information in your Account page (for Admin use only) and set up a public Profile page.
Creating a public profile is important for effective networking.
Up to three profiles can be made for different areas of work (e.g. for work as freelancer or company, or as researcher, editor or translator). Or one profile can be used to for a personal biography and all areas of work. The choice is yours.
The following membership types are available:
Regular Member. This is free. A user name, brief self-description, active email address, and password are required.
Shopfront.(Under development, enquiries welcome). Display your business profile, manage online financial transactions, and benefit from being on the same 'street' as your potential customers. A small annual subscription payment is expected. Our site does not require any commission for transactions. This may also suit individuals or small teams who do not otherwise have an online shopfront.
Volunteer.This category is for members who would like to help the Research Cooperative develop. We require writers, moderators, commentators, and more. Please enquire, or join our open volunteer group here.
