The "call out" or "speech bubble" icon at the side of any page in our network provides access to public and private chatrooms.
To find a suitable time to speak to someone in particular, find out which country they live in, then use a timezone guide to choose the time (see our time toolkits page).
When the the chatroom window is open (see image below), you can see two public chatrooms made specifically for the Research Cooperative (the names of chat rooms will change over time):
Open Topics (science and science communication)
Science Communication (about our network, e.g. questions, answers)
... and others.
To discuss a work project in private with another member, create your own private chatroom.
First create your chatroom, then invite another person to join.
The chatroom panel has <, > and other buttons that allow you to open or close the chatroom window, or make it open in a new window in your browser, for a full screen view.
Close the window completely with the >| button.
