'Methodspace' membership sees massive growth

Share this on social media:

Less than six months after its launch, 'Methodspace', an online social network for the research methods community, has more than 2000 members.

Launched in March by US-based research methods publisher, SAGE, the social network enables online discussion about all aspects of research methodology.

Users include students, researchers, medical and business professionals, and teachers from more than 100 countries, covering a broad range of disciplines, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed research methods.

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,' he said.

Registered users can participate in discussions about methodology issues and controversies, find out relevant conferences and events, and discover and review new resources in methods, including free book chapters and journal articles.
