Welcome to the Research Cooperative
Добро пожаловать! ¡Bienvenido! 환영합니다!
The Research Cooperative is a social network and NPO dedicated to supporting academic and educational communication (see more). The network brings together researchers, research students, science writers, editors, proofreaders, illustrators, indexers, translators, publishers, and others. If you or your company would like to join, please use the 'create account' (main menu above) to set up an account and public profile.
Visit Services to make or discover offers and requests for help related to academic, educational, scientific, and technical communication (all topics, languages, and countries).
- Editors, translators, illustrators and others can offer volunteer, discount, or full-priced professional help.
- Authors and publishers can request volunteer, discount, or full-priced professional help.
Our work-related focus Groups encourage contact between members with shared or complementary interests (e.g. editors or translators with interest in a particular topic can expect to meet authors who might need help editing or translating related research).
After joining and login, instant messaging with other members is possible. Click on the yellow text bubble icon at right (see more about 'chat').
Our network is introduced in other languages here:
Membership is free. To join, please apply for a user account (see "Create account" in main menu above, or "Signup" below). After your account is approved, please log in to set up or update your Profile and Account pages at any time.
Creating a public profile is important for effective networking.
Up to three profiles can be made to introduce different areas of your work (e.g. as researcher, editor, and translator). Or one profile can be used to introduce all areas of your work. The choice is yours.
Each profile can be developed as a personal website, with a blog and its own URL based on your username.
The following membership types are available:
New Regular Member. Free. A user name, brief self-description, active email address, and password are required.
Publisher. A nominal fee is requested for academic societies, groups, or publishers wishing to showcase activities and publications using a variety of digital media. Please enquire.
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.
If you would like to help the Research Cooperative develop and grow, we are always looking for volunteer writers, moderators, commentators, and more. Please enquire, or join our open volunteer group here.
