A global network of researchers

Discussion Forums

AuthorAID discussion and collaboration

The AuthorAID discussion forums are an online area intended as a friendly forum for researchers in the Global South to discuss and ask questions concerning research communication, research collaboration, and funding opportunities. The forums also host a research collaboration area.

The AuthorAID team are pleased to announce that our Discussion Group will shortly relaunch on the Google Groups platform, which will allow us to communicate easily via an email discussion list. This is designed to be a friendly group, open to researchers in any discipline for the following purposes:

  • Asking for help with any topics related to research writing, proposal writing, research communication.
  • Discussing the latest developments in research communication and digital publishing.
  • Looking for collaborators and opportunities for your research project.
  • Sharing tips and links to useful resources and opportunities.
  • Announcements from the AuthorAID team.
