University supports researchers in developing countries
1 August 2008
A new website aimed at helping researchers in developing countries to publish their work has been launched with the help of the University’s Institute for Learning and Research Technology.
AuthorAID, an online international research community, is based at the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP). It is supported by the Swedish International Development Corporation Agency (Sida) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The new website has been developed in conjunction with the Institute for Learning and Research Technology at the University of Bristol.
AuthorAID helps researchers in developing countries to publish and otherwise communicate their work. It also serves as a wider global forum to discuss and disseminate research.
Keys features and benefits of AuthorAID are:
- A community space for discussion and questions where researchers can benefit from advice and insights from members across the globe.
- Access to a range of documents and presentations on best practice in writing and publication
- Worldwide training workshops on scientific writing.
- A chance to network with other researchers.
- Personal mentoring by highly published researchers and professional editors.
