Back-to-Back subscription

'Back-to-Back' is an occasional newsletter of The Research Cooperative and is intended primarily for registered users of Research Cooperative forums and weblogs (see weblog list on the top page of the present site, and our online forums for research writing, editing, translation, and other research-related activities). The newsletter title refers to our Cooperative logo, which symbolises human contact, communication, and cooperation. A detailed explanation of the subscription process (and the cancellation or 'unsubscribe' option) follows after the form.

----------------------- SUBSCRIPTION FORM -----------------------

    Fill out your e-mail address to receive our newsletter!
    Hosting by

The newsletter will provide occasional reports on:

- development and use of Research Cooperative services

- other topics suggested by newsletter subscribers

- contributions by invited authors (please ask to be invited!)

Subscription process
A double opt-in (two step) method is used to ensure that genuine subscriptions are received. 'Double opt-in' is also referred to as 'confirmed opt-in.'

When you have entered your e-mail address, an automated verification e-mail is sent with a link for you to click on. The e-mail address will only be added to our subscriber database if the owner of the address clicks on the verification link.

After clicking on this link once, there is no need to do anything further (the ymlp website will be shown, but there is no need for you to do anything there).

This method is the safest, and is becoming standard practice. Double opt-in guarantees a clean subscriber list, so we can be 100% sure each subscriber has intended to sign up.

The subscription is free, no advertising will be sent, and your contact details will remain private. Each issue of the newsletter includes an 'unsubscribe' link.

Please subscribe!

Hi there, Hi Peter

I am japanese research cordinator and I have contacted you before for asking your activity. You have sent me a brief reports "Research Writing in Japan, No. 49, National Museum of Ethnology". Thank you for this again, and let me now contact with you again.

I am looking for foreign researchers in Japan, who are working as well in the communication of science (communication in academic study-research and/or in RDT). I don't care in which major domain you are specialised, but if you are interested in interdisciplinary cordination with skill of science communication, please contact me.

This is an unofficial call for interests for interdisciplinary research.

Dear Shingo,

Thanks - it might be good to post your request to the Society of Writers, Editors and Translators . Many of their members have academic research experience or interests, and it is common for professional editors and translators to have quite broad or cross-disciplinary interests.

Hi, Peter

I had contact with Dr. Halldor Stefansson of EMBL for his visit to Japan next april. It is very enriching for intedisciplinary research cordination, many thanks for your help.
I try to post my message on the board as you suggested me.
