Research Cooperative Review, Issue 27 (23rd December, 2014)
The Research Cooperative
A message to all members ( RCR 27)
Greetings from Kyoto (Winter). Best wishes to all members for the new year coming.
Unexpectedly, our network has not made any major shift to a new platform as previously planned. The new platform (Ning 3.0) is still under development by our hosting company, and still lacks the internal search functions that we need for effective exploration of the network by members and new visitors. Our network has attracted 7,400 members representing most regions of the world.
