1. As a Research Cooperative member you can post offers, requests, and replies in our forum for services related to research communication and publishing. Benefits are the same for our Standard regular members, and our founding regular members.
2. Members can also propose or join groups to discuss research and communication in different disciplines, topics, languages, and locations. See all groups index.
3. Every member is provided with a public profile page that has options for creating a profile blog and a gallery for images that you want to show (e.g. an illustrator's portfolio). Your profile blog has its own URL, so you can redirect an independent web address or URL directly to the blog page.
4. If you are keen to create and manage your own group, a free "Advanced Regular Member" membership can be request by directly contacting Admin. With this membership category, more advanced options for using the network are provided.
5. Better research communication.
Note: Authors are often too shy about asking for help. And editors do not always effectively look for work on topics that best suit their own abilities or aims for experience.
To all authors - please do not hesitate to seek help and critical feedback on your writing! This is best done from an early stage in the writing process, or at least from when a first full draft has been completed.
To all editors, translators and other service providers - please do not hesitate to describe what kind of work is most suitable or interesting for you.
For better research communication, we need to build positive, supportive relationships among all the people involved in getting research published.
