Welcome to the Research Cooperative
Kia ora! Добро пожаловать! ¡Bienvenido! 환영합니다! Willkommen! مرحبا بك
The Research Cooperative is a moderated social network and NPO dedicated to better academic, technical and educational communication (see more). The network brings together researchers, research students, science writers, editors, proofreaders, illustrators, indexers, translators, publishers, and others.
As 'knowledge workers' we all need to work together more effectively in order to achieve better communication of knowledge. This is why the network is called a 'research cooperative'.
Membership is free for individuals, educational organisations, and commercial companies.
Visit Services to offer, request or find help related to writing and publishing (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.
After login, instant messaging with other members is possible. Click on the yellow text bubble icon at right (see more about 'chat').
To join the Research Cooperative, 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.
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.
