Research Information is assembling a panel of readers to help it improve the content it delivers - and is inviting librarians and information professionals to apply.

'We want to introduce direct contact with a representative group of our readers,' says editor Tim Gillett. 'We'd like to engage in conversation with them throughout the year to check that we're covering the right sort of issues in Research Information, while also looking to see if there are other services we can offer that will help librarians/information professionals be the best they can be in their working environment.'

Successful applicants will be invited to participate in three or four panels per year, each comprising a short survey and follow-up phone call with a member of the Research Information team. Anything discussed will be entirely confidential.

'This isn't another mass survey leading to a report,' says Warren Clark, managing director of Europa Science, publisher of Research Information. 'It's about giving readers an ongoing platform to tell us about the ever-changing environment in which they work. It's important to us that Research Information provides the right sort of content and covers the issues that librarians and information professionals in the scholarly community want to see.'
