I look forward to reading more on the website and using it as a way of keeping up to date with methodological discussion and debate
Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC (PRWeb UK) August 15, 2009
Less than six months after launch, Methodspace - the social network for the research methods community - has passed more than 2000 members.
Launched in March by SAGE, the world's leading publisher in research methods, Methodspace facilitates online discussion about all aspects of research methodology. Registered users can participate in discussions about methodology issues and controversies; find out about relevant conferences and events; and discover and review new resources in methods, including free book chapters and journal articles.
The site has attracted an international community of professional and scholarly researchers from more than 100 countries and from a broad range of disciplines, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed research methods. Users represent PhD students; researchers; lecturers; medical professionals; teachers; and business professionals. The 2000th member on the site was Dr Jansev Jemal, Analytics Manager for professional research and consulting organisation, YouGov.
"I look forward to reading more on the website and using it as a way of keeping up to date with methodological discussion and debate," commented Dr. Jemal.
"The response to Methodspace shows exactly how research methods connects people from across geographic and subject boundaries," said Ziyad Marar, Deputy Managing Director and Publishing Director, SAGE. "Research Methods has been a core part of SAGE's publishing programme for over forty years with a collection of more than 1200 books, journals and reference works. We're delighted that Methodspace is providing a valued resource for this community."
