Welcome to the Research Cooperative
The Research Cooperative is an independent, privately supported social network and NPO (see full profile here). We welcome researchers, research students, science writers, editors, proofreaders, illustrators, indexers, translators, publishers, and others.
Our services forum is where offers and requests can be made for help related to for academic, educational, scientific, and technical communication and publishing (all topics, languages, and countries).
Work-related focus groups have been created to encourage interactions that may lead to useful collaboration.
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.
Membership is free. To join, please apply for a user account (see "Create account" in main menu above, or "Signup" below).
After your request is approved, please log in to set up your public Profile page. You can update your Profile and Account pages at any time after joining.
Creating a public profile is important for effective networking.
Up to three profiles can be made to introduce different interests or work areas (e.g. freelancer/company, or researcher/editor/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 its own URL based on your username, e.g. https://researchcooperative.org/peter_matthews (founder and chief administrator).
The following membership types are available:
New Regular Member. This is free. A user name, brief self-description, active email address, and password are required.
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.
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.
