Dynamic development continues

Following from our most recent tweetchat thought has been given to @annatatton1’s suggestion that our name was exclusive and perhaps constrained collaboration. With that in mind we have extended our focus from a social sciences forum to a ‘social research hub’. This development enabled the inclusion of social health and social work forums  in our website.  We have also added a methods forum. The website forum was launched a month ago and many of you have joined and we will continue over the coming months to spread the news of social media networks that we are creating to facilitate greater collaboration.  To this end we have now launched our linkedin account and hope that the array of platforms we are engaging with will prove to be useful for those of you who contribute to this project.

We are overwhelmed that in the past few weeks over 900 people have joined this venture and we are grateful for all your collaborative steps in spreading the news of our existence and potential. More of you have volunteered to moderate the forum and we welcome all offers of help even if short term. We also invite you to post links to your blogs and if you are looking for participants please also add a link to your study in ‘research request’ section. Also if you have ten minutes why not help out current researchers and participate in their study. It’s all about collaboration. In return we will retweet your links and help to promote your research interests.

It would be great if some of you would like to blog about your research or your thoughts on intra/interdisciplinary collaboration. We would also like to engage with other tweetchats and join forces on occasion, to further extend your capacity to connect with others. At the moment we have our own #socchat and support #spschat and #demphd. If you know of another chat that you would like us to follow or to host a ‘one off’ chat on a particular topic then please let us know.

We hope many of you will continue to give a little and gain a lot from what is emerging as a dynamic social project. As you can see you are readily able to influence its design, so please do get in touch with any ideas or contributions you would like to make.
