Open Access Week

October 23 - 29, 2023 | Everywhere

Networked Researcher is a UK-based academic publishing and networking platform with an international outlook.

Our main goal is to support and promote digital scholarship and researcher development through the critical engagement with online technologies.

The very nature of social media means that this project will grow through user interaction.
We would love to hear from people who are actively employing social media in their research and professional development.
This web site hosts two main spaces:
  • The Networked Researcher multi-author blog (publicly visible to everyone).
  • The Networked Researcher online workspace (visible only to logged-in registered contributors). 

If you are a graduate student, early career researcher or academic interested in exploring how the web is changing the way we do our work, please contact us and we will create an account for you as soon as possible.

Future and current ontributors are strongly encouraged to have an updated Gravatar account with profile picture and biographical details linked to the email account they are registered with on this platform.

Once you have an account you will be ready to blog and or post updates in our online workspace.

Our call for contributions is permanent; those already with accounts are encouraged to blog as often as they so wish.

There are many ways in which you can contribute. Ideally you will use the platform to blog about your research and adventures in academia or posting information about call for papers, reports from events and other academic announcements.

Contributors have total thematic freedom as long as it fits the general scope of the platform (online/digital technologies in  academic work).

We are seeking media-specific contributions (written to be read online).

The ideal length for each blog article is between 800 and 2000 words. If possible, all references made in articles should be hyperlinked to URLs and/or DOIs.  All contributions are subject to subediting by the editorial team.

Blogging is not the only way you can contribute, though. You can also simply help us adding interesting links, inviting other participants, or meet other researchers and network with them in our online workspace.

Please read our Community Behaviour Policy.
